Fred Van Hove uses the piano at times as a percussion device rather than a keyboard. The two basses build a foundation and a counterbalance and they do it with an astonishing imagination and extraordinary knowledge of their instruments. They switch seamlessly between plucking and bowing. 2 of the tracks are longer and one would imagine, that the music would ease a bit after some time. It is quite the opposite. The tunes are a seamingly endless flow of ideas, all utterly well executed.
Fred Van Hove studied theory, harmony, and piano at the Music Academy in Belgium and began playing professionally in 1964. He experimented with various jazz and dance music idioms before adopting free improvisation as his principal mode of expression. Van Hove began playing with saxophonist Peter Brötzmann in 1966. Their collaboration took different forms, eventually settling into a trio format with drummer Han Bennink, which lasted approximately five years. The solo format would become important to Van Hove; he played his first solo concert in 1970.

Belgian pianist Fred Van Hove is one of the founders of European free improv, together with luminaries like Peter Kowald, Peter Brötzmann, Paul Lytton, Phil Wachsman, Paul Rogers and Han Bennink, all musicians with whom he performed and recorded, creating mayhem in the established sounds of the sixties and the decades to follow, forcing audiences into new ways of listening. Now, almost fifty years later, Van Hove still challenges the musical world. We find him here in the company of two bass-players, Peter Jacquemyn and Damon Smith, who are like-minded spirits and both adepts of Peter Kowald,. The initial problem with the album is that it delivers what you expect, which is a slightly disappointing experience from three musicians from whom you would hope to hear the unexpected.
Smith (mixed intro the the right channel) and Jacquemyn (on the left channel) solidify the flowing energetic and intense approach with highly physical playing, both with the bow and pizzicato, enjoying to contrast and challenge each other. The second, 10-minute improvisation, is a relaxed interlude compared to the first or the the last improvisation. Burns Longer by Eyal Hareuveni.
