Released in 1989. A few copies founded in the basement of the label. Michel Doneda (soprano saxophone), Daunik Lazro (alto saxophone), Lê Quan Ninh (percussion). “Here’s an exuberant early Session by three Artists who have become stalwarts of the European Free scene. Michel Doneda is by now almost a household name as a free improvisor considered by some one of the greatest living saxophonists. Lazro and Ninh le Quan , seem almost unjustly neglected by comparison. Le Quan in particular is one of the most inventive percussionists in the music.. his playing on this album seemingly rooted in the traditions of East Asia...the whole alternates between folk tinged free jazz , with a few more severly austere processional sounding improvs,consisting of interlocking textures born of extreme Timbral contrasts.
My favourites though are probably the 2 very free treatments of traditional tunes .. Thillana by Carnatic & Hindustani musician, T.V. Gopalkrishnan, and the joyous Macedonian folk tune Prespansko,the sort of thing played by street brass bands accompanied by huge Tapan drums, after the consumption of the 80 proof plum Brandy known as Slivovitz.”
