This is precious music although I got the LP at a very favourable price. It's a prize!

Yes - I love especially the "dark" tune written by Barre Philips.
But also the "rest" of the album was really a find for me.

Many thanks for this gem, which i had on casette only yet. I have to say original Czech version has different cover and is titled 5 ran do čepice (probably possible to translate as 5 bangs into cap) = http://jiri.stivin.cz/d/st_5ran.htm -- recently i was lobbying at Supraphon for CD reissues of Jiri Stivin albums, he will be 70 next year, so something will probably happen. But jazz reissues are not rewarding enough for such a big company as Supraphon in general - Czech (or Czechoslovak) market is too small and they did not found yet way out - distribution partners. Few Stivin titles were reissued years back, but soon deleted from catalogue... some of them you can find for download here http://www.igalerie.cz/cs/music/art-music/410 in 128 kbps. His later (and some very good) works on Arta label is possible to buy here

I thought Supraphon was just (very good) classical. Surprise!
