Axiom by Tom Prehn Quartet, released 18 May 2019 1. Axiom 1 2. Axiom 2 3.

Test pressings were released to the musicians, but they were not approved and the label never printed more than the two first copies. kaleidoscopeman Awesome record. great piano comping and drumming. bass playing is sublime. and the tenorman's really inspired, here. he hits it right out of the park and takes the music up in to the sky. great purchase for me. thanks so much Favorite track: Axiom 1.

Albert Ayler and Cecil Taylor were important players, as was Ornette Coleman. Axiom has significant historical importance by being what is quite possibly the first European free jazz record, even if it was not released at the time. Recorded in Copenhagen in October 1963, it should have been Tom Prehn Quartet's debut album for the Sonet label. But by the time the test pressings arrived - a couple of months later - the music already sounded old to them and Sonet subsequently pulled the plug. This, in itself, is quite remarkable, knowing that they were so far ahead of their time. Tom Prehn Quartet. Music Video Distributors от лица компании Unheard Music Series, Atavistic.

Axiom was released on CD by Corbett vs Dempsey in 2015. So too does Tom Prehns Danish quartet on Axiom, originally recorded in 1963 and unissued until 2015 on Chicagos art-house imprint Corbett vs. Two side-long tracks were produced in Copenhagen for the Swedish Sonet label, and test pressings including finished artwork were sent to the musicians. For whatever reason, the project stalled. Whether it was ultimately the musicians or the label who nixed the release isnt clear. Prehn himself notes, The music already seemed old to us. And as it were, not arranged or meant for the traditional record media. Its entirely possible that neit. Axiom is the ninth studio album by the London-based trip hop band Archive.
