Radar - Live At Theater Gutersloh
Genre: Jazz
Review; Creative reeds player performs duets as well as with a big band. He was and early advocate of free jazz, but here he is more conventional but still adventurous. Not bad for 80 years old! He also plays classical music, but not here.
FCCs: none (I did not listen to the interview)
If You Like: Jan Garbarek, Ornette Coleman
