The Ganelin Trio was the greatest ensemble of free-jazz in continental Europe,
namely in Russia. Like other European improvisers,
pianist Vyacheslav Ganelin, woodwind player Vladimir Chekasin
and percussionist Vladimir Tarasov too found a common ground between free-jazz
and Dadaism. Their shows were as much music as they were provocative antics.
The music of albums such as Con Anima (1976),
Poco A Poco (february 1978),
Concerto Grosso (1978),
the double-LP Ancora Da Capo (november 1980),
Poi Segue (october 1975),
New Wine (1982),
Non Troppo (october 1980)
and especially Semplice/ Con Affetto (november 1983)
was a gross exercise in mis-interpreting Cecil Taylor, as if played by a circus ensemble affected by deep neurosis but with the skills of classical musicians.
After emigrating to Israel in 1987, they recorded the
the 47-minute frantically moving suite Cantabile (february 1989).
Live at the Lithuanian National Philharmony Vilnius (may 2005),

Conversation II (39.54) and
Homage to Friends (11.17).
The live Visions (june 2007)
In Tempo (february 2010) is a studio collaboration between Ganelin Trio's drummer Vladimir Tarasov and saxophonist Alexey Kruglov.
