What a (big) band - but quite contraire to Globe Unity, the LJCO or Sun Ra's Arkestra. Much more restrained in their pace but with no less power or sophistication. Their improvisations were "lower-case" before it became something like a working method for a younger generation. Some have gone in this direction quite far - hear Radu Malfatti's output for the last 15 (or more) years.
They made four recordings. One LP, which is sadly OOP and three CDs.
The last one should at least be still available > here
As far as I know Wolfgang Fuchs is seriously ill...so the orchestra is defunct.
Hope he does well.....
