What an interesting set this is. I love this period of these guys' work. So much to explore...

Nick said...

That was great. I wonder if anyone kept a tape of the whole set (wishful).

Was this the only track on the album or is it a 45 rpm record

Thanks and a merry Christmas to you.

This was the only track from the Manfred Schoof Quintet on the LP - Side A is completely devoted to the Red Onion Jazz Band and the first two pieces on side B are reserved for Georgie Fame. So far only ten minutes with this great group...

Many thanks folks,

is this the earliest Evan Parker on record? his first bit already sounds so mature and then the ayler bit later on. fascinating.

There are at least three CDs available with earlier recordings of Evan Parker:

1. One track on SME "Challenge" Emanem 4053 (22 April 1967)

2. SME "Withdrawal" Emanem 4020 (September/October 1966 and March 1967)

and 3. SME [Parker - Stevens - Kowald] "Summer 1967".

I have an shellac disc of Evan jamming with Charlie Parker, recorded when EP was only 10years old.Bird was on a secret trip to the UK to undergo an experimental treatment for painkiller addiction. Rumour has it that the cure involved drinking carrot juice while driving backwards on the wrong side of the road.

Pannonica enabled this trip. And none other than Dean Benedetti made a last pilgrimage up from Italy, made that inferior shellac using her hair products for fixative. Keep it away from flame. And probably body temperature. I wouldn't pick it up probably.

I don't care what Evan Parker & Mats Gustafsson say. It's definitely not Han Bennink on drums. And call me crazy, but the presence of Parker himself is debatable as well.

For the drums my guess would be either Sven-Ake Johansson or Jaki Liebezeit. I first thought especially the drums solo suggests SAJ, but Liebezeit's solo in Axiom sounds similar too. Anyway much of the other playing has that "spastic" or disruptive nature of Liebezeit's drumming on earlier Schoof recordings (on the 67/68 Brötzmann recordings, SAJ has a different flow). Hard to tell - but my vote goes to Liebezeit. Bennink definitely sounded completely different in those days! (just check out ICP 000 & 001)

Saxophone... Parker has that interrupted tongueing thing down already by this time (check out his tenor playing with Kowald & Stevens from 1967); none of that very personal tone articulation is audible here, not in one single moment! On the other hand, I don't hear anything in this recording, in particular in terms of saxophone tone and motivic work, that clashes with Dudek's esthetics from 1967. So what to make out of that?

In the end this is possibly the "classical" Schoof quintet, although the fantasy line-up provided by Mats Gustafsson sure would be exciting to hear as well.

This is a fascinating discussion and I cannot wait to hear the music, but for now I would just note that the on-line B. Niebergall discography (http://jazzlab.iwarp.com/discographies.htm/niebergall.htm/niebergall%20discography.htm) has the following entry:
