This is actually the second studio recording of this democratic trio, and fortyfive years after it was recorded, it is now finally being released. By the end of the 1960’s the trio was tired of playing standards, and fed up with bebop. They’d had it with the Dutch jazz scene, which only adhered to two schools of practice – good or bad. They wanted something else, something different. In Germany the trio encountered a vacuum. Bass player Alfred “Ali” Haurand had built up a fantastic network of contacts, which provided the band with lots of concerts. Often the trio was on the road for several weeks, sometimes up to a month, and frequently arriving home with a good chunk of change. They played a kind of free jazz, but nevertheless the band paid strict attention to what the three of them were playing. Free jazz at that time was very “in”. Now this lost recording is made available for the first time ever on vinyl. The record is housed in abeautiful fold out sleeve.
