(...)Primordial Soup is made up of German free jazz stars, yet they are called upon to navigate some very complex compositions. That is not to say that the pieces do not allow for some extended improvisation. It is just the knowing where the written stops and the free starts that is beyond recognition. The opening track, a twelve-minute  introduction into Primordial Soup«s mission statement tentatively slips across as a classical piece of music that is extended, elongated and infused with improvisation tools.

Midway through NGC 2271 Hades Bb the logical progression of the composition stops. The nothingness begins again with trumpeter Axel Dörner«s whispered breath technique. Is it the same song, but with a written passage of silence? It certainly must be the breathy growls and uttered tones, whether improvised or notated, are mood
stabilizers. It is as if the composer has written with tools that are all now familiar within free jazz; he has simply gathered them into his color palate for music making.

The obvious reference for a track like NGC 2273 Vier/Four with the off-kilter measure and the tuba bottom is Anthony Braxton. But Hübsch is less serious (in the best sense of the word) than Braxton. Compositions written here must have been developed with the individual players in mind.Hübsch allows the familiar playing of Dörner
and Gratkowski to blossom as he does not straightjacket each player by his writing.For his part, the drummer Michael Griener is a colorist and a fine collaborator with the other players. This music might be one of the finer examples of how free jazz can be tailored into not randomly coherent, but orchestrated, coherence.
