This a re-up from a post I made in January 2012. The words below are from this year.
But most of them are still good. Especially why is there no re-issue and more particularly > Enjoy!
When I got to hear this recording at a friends house (thank you A.) I immediately knew I had to obtain this extraordinary and marvelous composition (and playing!!) by Fred Van Hove.
Some days ago it arrived - and upon second hearing I wasn't disappointed - Au Contraire!
Hopefully Nato is preparing a proper reissue...
