With Diamanda Galas
Moers 1986 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Moers International New Jazz Festival, Moers, Germany; May 16, 1986. Very good soundboard (FM?).

Experimental then… and equally experimental today.

  2. I truly tried. I listened to as much of each piece as I could stand. This experiment fails.

    Thanks for the upload, bigO.

  5. Many thanks, one of my favorite bands of all time with one of the greatest scariest vocalists of all time to my ear. Good to see this show here.

  6. I’m a fan of Diamanda and Sharrock (both of whom I’ve seen live). Also a fan of Billy Bang and Laswell.

    I will check this out, but I’m not the biggest fan of free jazz and skronk.

  9. Namoosedog - yeah, I hear ya. I love this stuff, but you need to hear it live. Avant garde groups like this ( yes, today) play in small venues where all the seats are all up close. Your jaw drops and you are just amazed at what you are hearing & seeing. As Ed mentioned “Ask The Ages” is a fantastic cd and worth the listen. A great intro to some avant garde music. Pharaoh Sanders’ version of Coltrane’s Ole on “Heart Is A Melody” is a classic. Give it a try.
