“Mangelsdorff hielt das Never Let It End-Album für eine besonders geglückte Aufnahme seines damaligen Quartetts; er erinnerte dabei besonders an die Solo-Passagen von Heinz Sauer auf dem Altsaxophon und die kollektiv improvisierten Parts. Mangelsdorff zählte Never Let It End zudem zu den herausragenden Alben der europäischen Szene, gerade durch die Verbindung zwischen freier Improvisation und einem gewissen Haften an der Tradition; er bedauerte nur die wenig engagierte Vermarktungsstrategie durch MPS nach der Veröffentlichung des Original-Albums in den 1970er Jahren.” Wiki

Karsten Vogel – Montmartre (2018)

“In the last couple of years Vogel has released two albums, one with focus on Vogel’s great inspiration Charlie Parker, and one in cooperation with Per Aage Brandt, exploring their avantgarde roots. Now, Karsten Vogel is ready to release a new album with focus on his compositions and especially on his Saxophone playing. The album, entitled This Is It, should be seen as the completion of Vogels journey within music, as it is the final expression of what his great storytelling can amount to. Consequently, the are no plans for future recording sessions.” Storyville

John Zorn, George Lewis, Bill Frisell – News for Lulu (1987)

“Fun, fun, brilliant, spirit-raising fun. News For Lulu, recorded in 1987 and here reissued in a new master with a bonus track, features three idiosyncratic post-modern improvisers in a homage to the late 1950s hard bop songbook—not playing the material for laughs, not subjecting it to “reconstruction,” but approaching it with joy, respect, truck loads of energy and unfettered, viral abandon.” Allaboutjazz

Jamie Saft, Steve Swallow and Bobby Previte With Iggy Pop – Everyday (2017)

“So, the front man for the rock/pop group called The Stooges gets an invite to pitch in with a classic jazz piano trio. The Stooge would be Iggy Pop; the piano trio, Jamie Saft’s, with bassist Steve Swallow and drummer Bobby Previte. That’s quite an experiment, like something Frank Zappa might have tried.

Pianist Jamie Saft has hitched a big part of his star to John Zorn, appearing, as a sideman or leader, on a score of Zorn’s Tzadik label outings. That says “adventurous,” and “no boundaries.” But in his piano trio outings milieu, the avant-garde buttons aren’t pushed all that hard.” Allaboutjazz
