From the liner notes:

With O Moon My Pin-Up, Koglmann has undoubtedly enriched his multi-facetted oeuvre. Out of the characteristic synthesis of Cool Jazz idiom and Wiener Schule expressionism which had its inception with the founding of the "Pipetet" has grown over the years a microcosm of manifold structural links to the entire (western) world of music ranging from Renaissance to improvised music which transcend the co-ordinates of the historic "Third Stream", not to mention the new dimensions which the tapping of vocal music opens up for Koglmann's soundworld. O Moon My Pin-Up is not a musical "judgement" on Ezra Pound; it is neither a condemnation nor an apology. On the contrary, it's a sensitive reflection of the fragile polyphony of speech levels and inflections in Pound's poetry at the time of an existential crisis which is directly connected with the political events surrounding the end of the war. — Peter Niklas Wilson
