We'll end the consecutive trifecta, and begin the weekend, with a tale of brotherly love and collaboration spanning decades.
I found their music from being a huge Fusion fan, with their propensity to turn up in that context early and often.
Joachim and Rolf Kühn have been recording and gigging since the 1960s, and it gives me great pleasure to report that they still are.
I've been meaning to cover them for the whole seven years I've been at this, and today provides a sweet 47th anniversary show to do just that.

spectral analysis seems to indicate a pre-broadcast source, but there's a line at 20k so it must be a superb off-air reel

This constitutes the complete 90 minute set, composited from two different, awesome-quality broadcasts.
I shall return next week to baste you turkeys with a trifecta for Punksgiving, starting next Wednesday, but don't miss out on the brothers Kühn here.... there's an hour-an-a-half of funky fraternization on tap!--J.
