CD Review

"Bits & Pieces", Wolfgang Fuchs (1996 FMP, OWN90004).  This CD contains solos and duets by Wolfgang Fuchs (sopranino sax, clarinet, bass cl, and contrabass cl) with Evan Parker (soprano sax) and Jean-Marc Montera (guitar).  If you've heard any FMP CDs, you know to expect that this one is also free jazz.  WF does amazing things with/on/to the contrabass clarinet (a Leblanc 340), and spends quite a bit of time on it.  Worth picking up!

Hi Grant,

you're right,that's a very nice recording of Wolfgang Fuchs. There exists another fantastic FMP CD called "Holz Fuer Europa" ("Wood For Europe") feat. W.Fuchs,Peter van Bergen and Klaus Koch.
All three play bassclarinet and contrabassclarinet on this recording. I don't know the exact number of the CD at the moment but it should be easy to find the FMP webside.
