Willem Breuker Kollektief

Not to wander, but I recently picked up the willem breuker kollektief's live at the Donhaueschingen Music Festival and find it amazing. Its campiness and circus-like feel actually remind me of sun ra that I have heard a bit so there is a connexion. Anyone else familiar with this piece? Actually Bob Driessen's ALto sax solo on the first track (ouverture 'la plagiata') I find to be quite like a Marshall Allen solo. I really love this disc and would recommend it to anyone interested in large-group free improvisation. Actually there are 11 members in the kollektief, the same as on Nothing Is if my memory serves correctly. Maybe this is why it reminds me of Ra.
