Schlippenbach Quartet


© Dagmar Gebers

German pianist Alexander von Schlippenbach began improvising in small ensembles before establishing Globe Unity Orchestra in 1966. But, it has been his work in trio and quartet that has endured for more than forty years. With his collaborators - saxophonist Evan Parker and percussionist Paul Lovens - Schlippenbach has created a model for modern improvising pianists such as Pandelis Karayorgis and Matthew Shipp.

Personnel:
Evan Parker – saxophones
Alexander von Schlippenbach – piano
Peter Kowald – bass
Paul Lovens – percussion
