Though this 1988 LP release would seem to be riding the windy coattails of the World Saxophone Quartet, Schulze -- who died in 2010 -- had been working this territory since the late 1960s.

REVIEWS

"The Viertens pieces reinforce the view that this was one of the most radical, yet underappreciated, groups to emerge from the GDR." -- Rubberneck

"Incisive notated passages and intriguing improvisational strategies; imagine ROVA with George Lewis sitting in." -- Bill Shoemaker, JazzTimes

"Schulze has been working with avant-garde, all-horn groups since 1969, and this tremendous CD [FMP 087] shows the results. Schulze structures his music splendidly, with orchestral architecture and lots of group-oriented developmental processes. But he also pilots this quintet into awesome feats of full-bore sound, from the very subdued to very subversively intense." -- CODA
