Gumpert, Ulrich Workshop Band – “Suites” – [Jazzwerkstatt]

Very unusual recording (Berlin 2008) from leader Ulrich Gumpert and his band of improvisers. First four tracks (Aus Teutschen Landen/From German Lands) begin with old German songs, but after a couple of minutes disperse into free jazz. Track 5/6/7 (Sinfonietta) continue in the avant garde vein and have some nice reed, brass, and piano. Last three tracks (H-M-Suite) are a bit more down to earth jazz. Annoying, delightful, very interesting!
