Michel Godard - Offenburg 2004

And one more for the lovers of the tuba - a very fine AUD capture of Michel Godard's band "Cousins Germains" with the saxophones of Wolfgang Puschnig (Austrian of course) and Christof Lauer, Herbert Joos on trumpet, the devilish looks and guitars of Marc Ducret, and drummer Wolfgang Reisinger. A mighty fine band, that also has a CD out.

Godard has done many interesting projects, as I mentioned in the previous post. Among the finest are his own Castel del Monte discs, released on Enja. Medieval touches can be heard in this set as well, thanks to Godard's use of the serpent, a very old predecessor of the tuba.

This came as a crappily tracked 2CD set, I shortened it a bit here and there, retracked the whole show, and not the music can be enjoyed in all it's greatness!
Thanks a lot to the original seeder on dime, and thanks even more for dedicating this set to me, back then!
