FRANZ KOGLMANN QUARTET & STEVE LACY "BALVER HÖHLE, 1974"




This concert was recorded 15 months after the LP "Flaps" here.
Part of "Flaps was released on CD there. Lacy and Koglmann made one more LP where Bill Dixon + Koglmann (without Lacy) can be heard on the first side . A few tracks also made it on to the mentioned CD.
But this recording remains unreleased except the first track:

Note: "Flaps" was issued on JG RECORDS JG 036-039 (4xLP) - OOP
Take a look at the artwork of the LP.

Some translations: 'Wünschelrute' means divining rod / dowser.  'Weanerisch Dearn' is the Vienesse girl in Vienesse dialect and finally a bird is "Der Vogel".

onxidlib,Thanks for this you wet my appetite after looking at the album covers I was wondering if you have the Contact trio from JG 039 a favorite of mine. Being a Herbert Joos fan also JG 036 would be lovely if you have it. Forgive me for looking a gift horse in the mouth but I wouldn't know if you hadn't showed. You are enticing me.

Thanks Onxidlib. Flaps must have been one of the earliest groupings with Lacy and electronics, before Area and Lumps and MEV.

@ Nick: The recent Emanem release Steve Lacy "The Sun" has some '68 tracks with Teitelbaum. Onx, thanks for this rare treat.

Thank you!

I remember from the Opium reissue liner notes that "Der Vogel" is from a Cocteau poem.
