REVIEWS

"Colossal, brutish, majestic, here is the world’s (greatest?) orchestra asserting its primal role in the aftermath of free jazz." -- Richard Cook, Jazz Express

"...a magnificent recording of a magnificent 12-piece ensemble. Paul Lovens (drums) and Alan Silva (bass) provide pace and stimulus from the bottom up, aided by the fat, greasy power of three trombones (George Lewis, Günter Christmann and Albert Mangelsdorff – phew!) and Bob Stewart’s beautiful tuba. Everyone involved understands the mystery and majesty Schlippenbach is aiming for, and everyone sounds great." -- The Wire
