After You Gone
"If you think about where the players of this quartet paying tribute to Kowald are coming from, you'll get a glimpse of the network he helped to establish and was involved with: William Parker from Afro-American Free Jazz, Joelle Léandre from European Classical and New Music, Barre Phillips an American in Europe, experienced in the aesthetics of both these worlds, Tetsu Saitoh from Japanese Traditional Music, tango ensembles and, most importantly, Free Improvisation. It was Peter's belief already in the late seventies, when he started the trio with Leo Smith and Günter Sommer, that musicians coming from different cultural traditions could find a common base of communication via the language of free improvisation. His concept of a Global Village, which differs fundamentally from any kind of world music, was developed from this belief."
