Peter Brötzmann The Complete Machine Gun Sessions Atavistic 2007 Almost forty years have passed since the 1968 recording of German reedman Peter Brötzmann's Machine Gun at the Lila Eule in Bremen. The session, now regarded as one of the cornerstone records of European free improvisation, was a combination ...

Peter Br

Read "Peter  Br" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The milestones of the 66 year old German saxophonist Peter Brötzmann's career are a useful device by which to review his prolific and passionate music making. From early experiments with Alexander von Schlippenbach and the Globe Unity Orchestra, he gained jazz infamy with an octet recording called Machine Gun (FMP, 1968). Aptly named, the unrelenting surge ...

Read "Peter Brötzmann & Joe McPhee Quartet in Tel Aviv" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

Peter Brötzmann & Joe McPhee Quartet Levontin 7 Tel Aviv, Israel May 15, 2007 Writers tend to describe the blowing of German reed player Peter Brötzmann in terms of meteorological abnormalities. There is some truth in such metaphors, but such writers miss a much broader spectrum of articulations ...

An Exhausting Broztmann and Bennink

Read "An Exhausting Broztmann and Bennink" reviewed by Erik R. Quick

Peter Brötzmann and Han Bennink An Die Musik Baltimore, MD October 7, 2006 Few, if any, would claim that Peter Brötzmann is a tune meister. He has been referred to by some as a “sonic terrorist", while others describe his performances as “aural punishment". One story, perhaps fictional but ...

Peter Br: FMP 130

Read "FMP 130" reviewed by Kurt Gottschalk

22 years hence, these European masters have pretty well cemented themselves in their own corners of the free improv universe: the fury, sometimes restrained, of Peter Brötzmann; the madness of Han Bennink; and the elegant wandering of Fred van Hove. But when they got together in Bremen on February 25, 1973, it was with a sense ...

Peter Br

Read "Peter Br" reviewed by Andrey Henkin

Since his first recordings in the mid '60s, German saxophonist Brötzmann can either be accused of being limited or extremely focused. Whatever the ruling, there has been no one player over the past decades who better encapsulates the upheaval of post-war Europe. Four “new discs with different groups, but with different sounds, are consistent with his ...

Peter Br: Signs

Read "Signs" reviewed by John Kelman

Woodwind multi-instrumentalist Peter Brötzmann has never been one to shy away from extremes in a career that has spanned nearly forty years and nearly a hundred albums. He has been one of the strongest proponents to emerge from the Albert Ayler school of musical thought. While he's capable of extracting an incredible array of sounds from ...

Peter Br: Still Quite Popular After All Those Years

Read "Still Quite Popular After All Those Years" reviewed by Alexander Vogel

It has been 24 years since these two musicians have engaged in a duo, or any other musical collaboration. The musical association of German multi-woodwind stalwart Peter Brötzmann with ever-eccentric Dutch drummer Han Bennink can be dated back to 1968, perhaps earlier. Together with Brötzman's octet, they would release one of the most overwhelming albums in ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
