hi nick,many thanks for this great post. for me it's never too much of willem breuker kollektief. in my opinion it can be the european answer for sun ra arkestra. kollektief always mixes the examples taken from european classical music with free jazz and avantgarde in a very interesting and quite unusual way. there are still many kollektief albums released on vinyl only and never so far posted in the blogland. your record was not mentioned in any breuker discography that i checked so far. once again thank you very much. great music, really.
Splendid! Just splendid!Thank you, Nick!
Personnel announced by Michiel de Ruyter on the record:Willem Breuker: bass clarinet, alto saxophoneBoy Raaymakers: trumpetJan Wolff: French hornWillem van Manen: tromboneBernard Hunnekink: tromboneBob Driessen: alto saxophoneMaarten van Norden: tenor saxophoneArjen Gorter: bassRob Verdurmen: drumsThe line-up indicates that the performance must be around 1977 (the year of issue of this LP), since both Ronald Snijders and Leo Cuypers are already absent. Just an idea, though.
Great share - thank you Nick!
Luckily, in the intro, the announcer identifies the musicians (but not the date or venue):WB - bcl, saxRoy Raaymakrs - tpWillem van Manen tbBob Driessen - saxBernard Hunneking - tbMaarten van Norden - tsJan Wolff - frhArjen Gorter - bRob Verdurmen - drall pretty much the usual collaborators in the WBK of the 70s - with the exception of Leo Cuypers who does NOT join them on piano for this session.
Ha! Lucky already posted what I had to say. Sorry about the duplicate. You may just decide to ignore my previous comment.
short but a famous Breuker; thanks.
Very Cool! Thanks.The very prolific Breuker is sorely missed...
wonderful music, thanks!
Thanks Lucky and Otto - I was a bit tired when I posted this and forgot the intro!
thank you, nick - also for the mengelberg/bennink set! :))))the music is the main thing, the info is just a bit of extra for us weirdos to place it in history. mengelberg doesn't give a damn about recording artifacts - he lives in "the now". but since i'm not mm, i love to listen to the icp-box. ;)
According to the promotional material in my copy of the record, this was recorded September 21, 1976, in Amsterdam.
don't understand why i try to download from any of the three sites provided, i get the just intonation toolkit but none of the Breuker tracks….any advice?thanks!
Don't know anon, it works fine
Michiel de Ruyter's announcements on this record always cracked me up. It also cracked Willem up... This is great stuff. I have this box set mothballed and I'm glad someone ripped it for all to hear.
Hi, could you please re-up this, i would appreciate it a lot if you could do that, thanks so much
I found the paper work with the track lists too.
Thanks for the new scans too, Nick. It becomes a real pedigree affair now with all the paperwork included. But honestly, that information is good to have too. Very much appreciated.
Thanks a lot for re-upping, really looking forward to this, thanks
A reup would be great, thanks!
Hi David - tried to locate it but I haven't found it.
