S4 (Butcher / Kobi / Koch / Leimgruber): Cold Duck (Monotype)

Label: Monotype    
Released in: Russia    

"4 soprano saxophones and 4 friends in an unveiling and resonating output of creative energy in a form of improvised structure. There is no miss here. Experienced musicians and excellent skills connected with talent build up sonorous structures which surround the listener as an evolving ambience.The clichees of free-improvised music luckily steer away from this disc but you need proper surrounding, time and space to truly appreciate this form."-Monotype
