    Recorded a month after Outspan No 1, this album offers up four more sonic delights from the core trio of Brötzmann, Van Hove, and Bennink. Rarely has free jazz/Euro improv/circus music/[your identifier here] sounded so unfettered and delightful -- adventurous without seeming self-serious, silly yet not without gravity. A must for any fan of these three maestros.

Outspan 2 07:03


released September 11, 1975


"They are very good at juxtaposition and counterpoint - always throwing each other curves and integrating them into successful improvisations." -- Milo Fine, Sweet Potato

"This is music that is absolutely full of humor, but without a compromise in the level of musicianship. In fact, the humor - the musicians’ utter refusal to take what they are doing too seriously - is the most refreshing aspect of the recording.... The music has a bright carnival atmosphere about it (it’s a very live recording), and it features everything from Van Hove chasing after villains in top hats to the band’s brief irreverent homage to the German polka. This is a true performer’s art...thoroughly enjoyable and perhaps fully as important in its own way (and certainly every bit as ambitious) as the group’s earlier releases." -- Henry Kuntz, BELLS
