Amazing! Christmann is my favorite, the more recordings of him playing double bass the better!

Thanks very much for this -- I do love the Christmann/Schonenberg recordings and they sure are hard to find.

Thank you very much for sharing this music. You are great as every time. Absolutely great and uncompromising blog. This duo I've never heard before. They're insane, but it's very important supplement to european free improv scene in 70s.

And one question: Has anybody Schonenberg solo record? It's currently out of print.

Andy has done these guys a great service- two of the musics great masters at the height of their game. Take a break from the gagaging world and be blown away!

Bozo made a boo-boo. The previous comments should have appeared with the Christmann/Barry Guy tape, but the jist of it remains the same in either case--two great masters in action! Detlef was a monster, a legend, and brought out the best in his partner. All their stuff on FMP and RING is CLASSIC!
