At the time, Mr. Kan was the leading Soviet producer of new music, avant-garde jazz, and experimental rock. The founder of the Leningrad Contemporary Music Club, (which throughout the late 1970s until it was banned in the 1980s, served as a solitary bastion of artistic free expression), is joined by Larry Ochs of ROVA, as they wend their way through an artistic motherlode of unofficial recordings made in performance during the 1980s.
