Jazz Alchemist (will open a PDF documents in Dutch)

And a short review by Francois Couture on his Monsieur Délire blog:

An interesting free improvisation meeting between globe-trotting flutist Mark Alban Lotz and Turkish improv group Islak Köpek (a quintet comprising two saxes, cello, guitar & laptop). Fifteen short tracks developing occasionally conventional ideas, though always in clever ways. This music is slithering and shaking with life.

Rencontre intérssante d’improvisation libre entre le flûtiste globe-trotter Mark Alban Lotz et le groupe d’improvisation turc Islak Köpek (un quintette comptant deux saxos, violoncelle, guitare et électroniques). Quinze pièces courtes développant des idées parfois convenues mais intelligemment exécutées. Ça grouille, ça bouille, ça vit.
