"Lindsay Cooper was a rare and extraordinary woman; at home in rock bands (Henry Cow, National Health), jazz ensembles (Mike Westbrook Orchestra, Maarten Altena Octet), concert halls ('Concerto for Sopranino Saxophone and Orchestra,' 'Songs for Bassoon and Orchestra'); she also founded the Feminist Improvising Group, scored feature films, wrote for television, dance, radio, theater, contemporary ensembles, and orchestras, and was highly respected as a virtuoso performer on several instruments. A number of recordings are still available, but much is undocumented. The rarities series hopes to redress this lack. The two CD set includes two previously unreleased gems: 33 minutes and 33 seconds of a beautiful recording of the Trio Trabant (Lindsay Cooper, Alfred Harth, and Phil Minton) made in 1991 and heard here for the first time, and the luminous Rosetta Stone that is 'Piano Roulette,' a newly discovered piano solo performed at a concert in New York in 1985."
