40 YEARS OF SCHLIPPENBACH-TRIO – THE SCHLIPPENBACH TRIO IS STILL PLAYING.
90 YEARS OF BAUHAUS – BAUHAUS IS STILL STANDING.
CONGRATULATIONS! THE SCHLIPPENBACH TRIO IS PLAYING AT BAUHAUS.
Now Alexander von Schlippenbach, Evan Parker and Paul Lovens get on the stage which has been restored true to the original, in order to present us with this cubistic, democratic design in the form of music: collective improvisation. No beginning. No end. Listen to how these asymmetric beings, with the classic free improvisation line-up who,
in the right place, transcend borders, dissolve them in a constructivist and cubistic, multiple-fractal manner, in order to present us so sensuously with such a “lack of illusions” (Ute van der Sanden).
Alexander von Schlippenbach: Piano
Evan Parker: Tenor Saxophone
Paul Lovens: Drums

It's almost hard to believe there's any space for Tim to fit in when they play this stuff as a duo! The magical uber-complex counterpoint flowing from and resolving to the killer tunes has a similar feel to the full band Berne but these are clarifying in their complexity - you can understand all the moving parts on the same level. Also perhaps the best showcase of Mr Mitchell's solo skills I've heard - he's fully in his element! Giles

Yes,yes,yes! I've been waiting for Dave to do this again...two brilliant runs by DDQ and Keystone were documented on Greenleaf back in the day; they were groundbreaking...recorded and released within 24 hours for each set...they were stellar performances and I play them again and again.
With absolutely no chance of ever being there, this is the closest i'll ever be to 'being there'...so excited I may need to lay down in a darkened room for a while! John Cratchley
