New Movements in jazz (Nederlands radio transcription service 87.073/076) disc 2, Ernst Glerum's -New Klookabilities ,FLAC and LAME

"Ernst Glerum (b.1955) is a bass player with one of the best Dutch orchestras: J. C TANS and THE ROCKETS, and also composes much of the band’s material. The quality of this and other work caused the NOS to invite his composition for the 1986 Festival. Glerum chose to write for an eleven piece orchestra, the members of which were brought together especially for the occasion. The resulting music was a wonderful combination of traditional music forms and playing techniques and contemporary improvised music. The band consisted of: 1 trumpet, 1 trombone, 1 tuba, 3 reeds, piano, electric guitar, bass and two drummers. Glerum added to these already manifold talents of composer, leader and basist, by playing a minature electric organ, the Philicorda, which had been marketed for home use some years before and which under the magic touch of Glerum emitted some splendidly silly sounds. To emphasize the traditional element within the music Glerum called the band New Klookabilities, a name derived from “KLOOK” the nickname of the late Kenny Clarke."

Hi Sotise,
This looks great. Some of my dutch favourites. Good way to finish this weekend! Glerum is great, and his versatility for all "contexts" is terrific!
