Reminiscences of Jesper Zeuthen, Ornette Coleman and others from the experimental

Pultz Melbye has many interesting ideas, and gets enough space and time to present
them. He’s a very good saxophone player, who probably will disappoint someone with
his very special saxophone sound, while others will love it.
