sample the album:
"The pianist alone in the studio. That is the counterpole to vonSchlippenbach's work with the Globe Unity Orchestra; at the same time, it is also an orchestral challenge in the form of the keyboard, hammers, and strings of the piano. He prepared four twelve-tone compositions and a few ideas for pieces, including a few brilliant themes by Monk or Dolphy. What's left is the freedom of going it alone and losing oneself in oneself, motivated by a life's work in motion ... With tremendous joy in playing, Alexander von Schlippenbach returns to his foundation and impetus: to jazz."-Bert Noglik, Liner Notes
