Fred van Hove's Church Organ


Belgian avant-garde pianist Fred Van Hove is well known for his collaborations in the late sixties with Peter Brötzmann and Han Bennink. He often incorporates a church organ into group and solo improvisations. This recording is from the "Church Organ" LP of jarring and dissonant solo improvisations.

Fred Van Hove - Greetings From The Land Of Amateurs (shht - we're still in church)

I'm in love anytime anyone hammers away at a church organ.

Hi Jubbo (I just can't bring myself to say Fatty)!

Been meaning to stop by and say thanks for linking to me. And thanks for some dissonant organ!

hi jubbo,
i am looking for van hove - church organ album for many years - with no effect. any chances for posting the whole lp in mp3 ? would be very grateful. i have a lot of van hove recordings, almost his whole discography, but nothing on church organ solo. i bought his great cd pijp - with konrad & johannes bauer - van hove plays church organ there. would be nice to hear him solo on church organ. best regards.
