Awesome, unusual album which combines elements that would at first sight be completely incompatible: 1) British folk music, whaling songs, medieval German folk and 2) improvised fusion of free jazz & hard bop (I call it free bop, don't know if it's a common term, but describes the Mangelsdorffian kind of music quite well).
Definitely worth hunting, could be quite hard to find though. Open minded listeners will be rewarded with some unique and outstanding music that won't wear out even after repeated plays.
