I first heard Han when I was introduced to the early avant-garde European scene via Atavistic's great Unheard Music Series, and he was Brotzmann's typical drummer in the early FMPs. I didn't realize what a significant force he still is today until I took the plunge and bought the incredible "Complete Instant Composers Pool" box containing their first 50 recordings on the ICP label, which Han started with Misha Mengelberg and Willem Breuker.  Some great recordings of Han there in solo, small group and the ICP orchestra! Also 2 DVDs of two different solo performances by Han in the '90s. A great item to have if you can afford it; it was definitely an impulsive act of irresponsible spending for me...
