Fourmenonly

Profile:
Experimental jazz outfit fronted by pioneering German trumpet and flugelhorn player Herbert Joos. Their sound was well structured, more so than most other German ensembles from this period. Multitrack recording was used which generated controversial discussions among musicicians and fans alike. Being a non-professional ( meaning they weren't making a living with music) group they weren't fully taken seriuosly.
Today their seminal work is acknowledged although they remain rather unknown with the exception of Herbert Joos.
Fourmenonly were the direct successor of The Modern Jazz Quintet Karlsruhe. This happened when Claus Bühler (3) left the group during a concert due to musical preferences.
