This music expects commitment from the listener...after all, it was made with total commitment by the coterie of musicians involved; a bolder statement of intent would be hard to find...

    BOX SET PLUS BOOK. Here is the previously LP-only set, a fantastic three-disc sampling of FMP bands from the label's birth through 1978. It chronicles both the evolution of FMP itself, and the flowering of European free improvisation during that same period. The three LPs are grouped by format: the first features solo performances; the second, small groups; the third, large orchestral works.
    .
    Remastered for this digital release, the download also includes a PDF version of the original 138-page book, with written contributions from Steve Lacy, Misha Mengelberg, and Peter Brötzmann, as well as longer analyses by Ekkehard Jost, Wolfgang Burde, and Tomas Schmit. Gloriously illustrated throughout with black-and-white photos and archival posters used to announce the annual "Workshop Freie Musik," the ebook is a remarkable record of an explosion of talent and creative fire.

REVIEWS

"...a mega-dose of thrilling sounds from legendary performers, and well worth any avant-jazz fan’s time and money." -- Phil Freeman, Burning Ambulance

"There isn't a bad or weak cut on all three albums. And with the beautifully laid-out information and photos, I can't help but heartily recommend this package. It is a totally qualitative representation of various areas of contemporary improvised music." --Cadence
