"And just when you thought you’d heard it all here comes a recording with claviola, daxophone, and komungo! This is old world charm teamed up with East Asian influences meets new school improv. It is quite lovely, but not in a typical way - this is FMP, after all. A nice balance just in the strings alone - at times lulling and sweet but then juxtaposed with harsh tones. I’ve always been a fan of plucked strings and this group serves up a beautiful portion of steroidal pizzicato. Absolutely delicious - this is a fully satisfying listen! Track three, “Pro,” is the “pro” in improvise and is a delightful find. Also worthy of note: the last track is a fairly straight ahead (okay, make that recognizable) version of “Those Were the Days” (credited to Paul McCartney but actually written by Boris Fomin). My friend, I think that is a first for FMP as far as recording cover tracks goes."

"Manuela is Rüdiger Carl (clarinet, accordion, claviola), Hans Reichel (guitar, daxophone) and Carlos Zingaro (violin). The “+” is Jin Hi Kim on komungo (a Korean koto). Live in Berlin features a previously unreleased live recording from Total Music Meeting 1999. A very fine set of free improvisation featuring an instrumentation as unorthodox as it can get. Nice interplay, lots of zany and tender moments, and it’s always a pleasure to hear Reichel’s daxophone (and if you don’t know what that is, I suggest you google it)."

That's an easy one! We're all BEING human, and we're all BECOMING dead!
'Til then, Parmenides and Heraclitus aside, I'll add Evans to my collection of favourite trumpeter albums.
I love the easy-breezy charm of Chet Baker, blowing soft clouds; and Miles Davis' Bitches Brew is obviously it.
This is suiting my taste in the abstract right now.Put a trumpet player through a mincer with a squeaky toy he might sound like this.Which is not a criticism, truly.A link of Peter Evans? Breakfast sorted! nicholas hamnett
