The very forward-thinking trio of Terry Riley on keyboards, Don Cherry on trumpet and Karl Berger on vibraphone, performing a trance-like set of improvisations live in Koln, Germay in 1975, with Cherry's detailed playing riding over the hypnotic grooves of Berger & Riley.

Riley, Terry / Don Cherry / Karl Berger: Live In Koln February 23, 1975 [VINYL] (Modern Silence)

Label: Modern Silence    
Released in: Malta    

"A legendary recording that pairs Don Cherry's heavenly trumpet stylings, Terry Riley's psychedelic/minimalist organ work and the vibes of Karl Berger in a great live concert recorded in Koln in 1975. Riley is in stunning form playing the kind of endlessly rippling dosed organ drones with a sense of stasis in expansion that is uniquely brain-razzing. Cherry's playing is heart-stoppingly beautiful, curling slow, melancholy arcs and threading high angel tones through Riley's electronic matrix. A great document of a key moment in the history of minimalism music and a beautiful combination of great artists. "-Modern Silence

180 gram vinyl. Edition of 500.
