New Violin Summit - Live At The Berlin Jazz Festival

Recorded live at the Berlin Jazz Festival
Berlin Philharmonic Hall
November 7, 1971

This is a legendary album. Once heard the LP back in the 1980s and have been trying to find either on LP or CD. This is the only CD release out of Poland. Aside from the four great violinists the backing band is spectacular featuring Terje Rypdal, Wolfgang Dauner and Robert Wyatt. CD contains the full double LP at just under 80 minutes. Sound quality is quite good for a 1971 live recording. Not for the faint hearted, this is very intense music.
