Nummer 12 40:02


Composed by Manfred Schulze.


released July 14, 1986


"Nummer 12...integrates incisive notated passages and intriguing improvisational strategies; imagine ROVA with George Lewis sitting in, and you're in the ballpark." -- Bill Shoemaker, Jazz Times

"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

"...solos and duos break out from the characteristic choral sound, but it’s always organic, always logical, highlighting the advanced techniques of the individual players.... one of the most radical, yet underappreciated, groups to emerge from the GDR." -- Rubberneck
