Here's a TERRIFIC show gleaned online.... one of the many great German Free Music broadcasts of the 70's that have been preserved by Tapers and Trader's over the years.
To non Europeans ,even those whose radio arts programs are Government funded, its pleasantly odd and constantly amazing , just how much significant music was sponsored and broadcast in Western Europe...in the 60's and 70's ( and still)

help spread the goodness by sharing whatever you download ... and Buying as much as possible, all involved save for Steve Lacy are still alive and making great music.... all have extensive discographies.

Ive only Just re listened to this ..... a jaw dropingly stunning gig.....amazing shit... all improvs plus a great version of Lacy's bone!
the sound quality is very good....

Thanks to the Original Dime-a-Dozen Seeder Mbutchko... and whomever had the, for sight to record it !!

i like when PB has to be tempered by others.

thanks a ton, and a happy season to you.

Incredible how these shows turn up. Very excited to hear these ensembles. Sort of Company-esque.

thank you; I ignored this at first, thinking it looked like it might all be too dense, but have just looked properly and see it's smaller groupings from the larger ensemble, looks very good.
