Peter Brotzmann Chicago Tentet: "3 Days in Oslo"
In the end, I sometimes wonder why Peter Brotzmann continues down this unappreciative and lonely path. He could choose to sit within the surroundings of his home and spend more time with his other passion, his paintings. At times, I think of him as the tormented genius who sometimes wonders what it all matters. However, it is my sincere hope that he understands that every note and every emotion that he gives life, is a mirror of the human soul that creates a bridge to the spiritual universe. It is a transcendent music for future generations but perhaps even more important, its brilliance personifies the humility and discovery of our artistic and spiritual realm of existence. It is crucial.
