4 1/2 STARS ALL MUSIC GUIDE

Corbett vs. Dempsey presents a reissue of Misha Mengelberg's Groupcomposing, recorded in 1970 and originally released in 1978.

Comprised of a one-time international free music supergroup, and originally released as the sixth production on pianist Mengelberg and drummer Han Bennink's ICP label, Groupcomposing has been largely absent from the history books. This is the case because the record has been so unavailable, certainly not as a comment on the magnitude and magnificence of the music.

With its Bennink cover (take that Andy Warhol!) and its two side-long tracks, it is an improvised music aficionado's treasure.
