Barre Phillips - 2 german radio sessions (1980)

Journal Violone was - at first - a solo project by Barre which started out in 1968 as literally a kind of bass diary.  Journal Violone II was a trio effort, recorded by ECM and released in 1979. It somehow bridges the earlier trio-work (never on ECM) and the experimental work of Mountainscapes/Three Day Moon and the more vocal-oriented work on 'Music by Barre Phillips' (sadly never released on CD).
This seed is culled from two radio performances which are definitely not complete, but this is how it was originally seeded. 

John Surman - saxes, clarinets
Barre Phillips - bass, synths
Aina Kemanis - voice

    1. cfibanez - Rapidshare have recently changed their download procedures; if you want anything faster than a kilobyte-by-kilobyte crawl, you have to complete a (free) registration. See my comments under the Enrico Rava post of 18 September 2013 for more info.

      Barabbovich - many thanks for this, especially good to hear Surman in such a rare context.

    2. Thank you both, Alan & cfibanez
