I won't give a review for this latest release on the almost dormant label "psi".
But these 'liquid sculptures' have won my admiration easily. Quite a special sound-world.
Gouband plays lithophones (percussion played on and with stones) while Nauseef mostly uses metallic percussion.
Evan Parker feels strongly that this is one of the best records he has ever made.
And I gladly agree with this notion. Already added to my 'top ten' of 2016.
Highest recommendation on my side.
Just deleted the link for a LP rip we've offered in 2010.
Yesterday morning - some minutes before I went to work - I discovered that it was reissued in September. Luckily it was available in Germany and so I got it today.
Remastered from the original tapes and housed in a LP replica.
A great early collaboration between Japanese and Afro-American masters.
The above recording is the second CD which shall add up to a trilogy.
"Luten" > Ernst-Ludwig Petrowsky is in top condition here despite being 81 when this 30 minutes of music were recorded - yeah.
The line-up appeared promising before I heard it for the first time some weeks ago:
Ernst-Ludwig Petrowsky - as, cl
Elan Pauer - p, perc
John Edwards - b
Robert Landfermann - b
Christian Lillinger - dr, perc
Available through the label Euphorium and elsewhere.
