"our music is poly-rhythmical. tempi are not marked metrically but emerge out of the "respiration of the rhythm". the drums play a polyrhythmic texture. the structure of this texture underlies the laws of this respiration.
every instrument in our quintet is simultaneously a rhythm- and an accompanying instrument. melodies are formed in a free 12-tone scale. the gained prosperity in material enlarges the possibilities for composition and improvisation. the group is an organism. the freedom of the individual develops within the interplay. the more this interrelation realizes itself the better and more concentrated the music will be.
we connect the various compositions without intermissions. in this way we can intensify the concentration and this manner of playing approaches the symphonic form where everything is joined in an entirety" (Manfred Schoof in 1966 (on the back-sleeve of this release)
these are the stunning mid-60's recordings by this german Avant-Free-Form Jazz quintet feat. Schoof on cornet & fluegelhorn, Gerd Dudek on tenor sax, Alexander Von Schlippenbach on piano, Buschi Niebergall (b) and Jacky Liebezeit (of later CAN-fame) providing some far-out drumming already!! this album sure marks some crystal peak in fields of 20th century european Jazz and beyond!!
