Manfred Zepf meets Andrew Cyrille
West Wind (Germany) 1987
sleeve : VG+(SPSE: 7cm crack on bottom, wear on edge and corner.)
media : EX-/EX-(some light noises caused by slightly hairlines.)

This is the 1987 album by German bassist Manfred Zepf, who has also contributed to the works of Toto Blanke and Dagobert Bohm. It stands as his only solo release. Zepf, who began participating in sessions with Coleman Hawkins and Ted Curson in his teens, and later joined the Cecil Taylor Unit in the mid-1960s, collaborated with American drummer Andrew Cyrille, a longstanding supporter of Taylor's sound. The album features an eclectic lineup, including saxophonist Michael Sievert, trumpeter Heinz Becker (who left the album "Ich Traume So Leise Von Dir" in 1987), and drummer Edvard Vesala, known for his acclaimed works on ECM and JAPO. The album opens with the primitive sounds of ethnic percussion in A1 and showcases high-quality avant-contemporary jazz throughout, including B2 with its free-form drumming, deep bass, and mysterious lead. This lesser-known gem unveils a compelling collection of tracks. Each piece is exceptional, making it a must-listen for fans of ECM.

A1: Intro - Jamie
