This will be an interesting listen, as I'm not familiar with either the bassist or the drummer. Any idea of a recording date? Early 1970's? Many thanks, there can never be enough Gunter Hampel or Jeanne Lee.

Lee, Hampel, Morris and Silva are fantastic here, great playing, great music! Unfortunately Wollny's and Penck's playing is rather poor ... - Penck was a great painter. But I was disappointed of all his recordings with often great musicians he invited.

Thanks, probably mid-80s. http://www.discogs.com/TTT-2-featuring-AR-Penck-Jeanne-Lee-G-Hampel-Im-Stadtgarten-K%C3%B6ln/release/2272510

Again! inconstant sol is wonderful.

Yes, I would think 80s, too. I don't think we have posted any Penck prior to the 80s. Agree with the comment above on Penck's aptitude as drummer. I recall there was a general agreement on that last time it was discussed, on the Church No. 9 blog, though not unanimous.

I believe end of 1991 or beginning of 1992 is more likely.
See http://www.bb10k.com/PENCK.html#STADTGARTEN for a bit of evidence.

But Penck invited such wonderful company.

I would agree with the 1991/92 dating, both on the strength of onxidlib's link and what I believe is a date of 05-92 in the inner ring of the CD. Likely the release date.
Again, thanks for this great recording!

I somehow missed this the first time around. Given the recent surge of Penck releases here, is it possible to get a reup?
