An audience recording from a wonderful group who made only very few recordings - especially the first track here is excellent.
At the moment there's only one recording readily available as a download - but it's worth every penny.
Check it out at destination-out bandcamp store > Two Compostitions by Rüdiger Carl with COWWS

Rüdiger Carl, tenor saxophone & clarinet
Jay Oliver, bass
Phil Wachsmann, violin
Stephan Wittwer, guitar
Irène Schweizer, piano

1. in einem fort  47:59
2. in einem fort setzung  4:23
3. kühl gleitend  12:51
4. wellenförmig  3:39
5. iterativ  7:21
6. walzer  3:38

Recorded at the Jazzatelier in Ulrichsberg, Austria on June 4, 1988.

Thanks a lot for this COWWS recording, onxidlib! :)))

I bought "Grooves 'n' Loops" when it came out in the mid-90's because of an interesting review in the - but it was far more than interesting, it was almost frightening brilliant. I still don't really understand what is going on... but I love it.

Zwei Quintette was one of the first FMP downloads for a very good reason.
