Peter Brötzmann


Born Remscheid, Germany on 6 March 1941; soprano, alto, tenor, baritone and bass saxophones, a-clarinet, e-flat clarinet; bass clarinet, tarogato. Peter Brötzmann's early interest was in painting and he attended the art academy in Wuppertal. Being very dissatisfied with the gallery/exhibition situation in art he found greater satisfaction playing with semi-professional musicians, though continued to paint (as well as retaining a level of control over his own records, particularly in record sleeve/CD booklet design). In late 2005 he had a major retrospective exhibition jointly with Han Bennink - two separate buildings separated by an inter-connecting glass corridor - in Brötzmann's home town of Remscheid.

Derek Bailey, Sabu Toyozumi: Breath Awareness

Read "Breath Awareness" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Guitarist Derek Bailey never compromised his approach to music, but was he influenced and his sound affected by set, setting, and playing partners? Those new to Bailey's working method may posit his approach was inflexible and unaccommodating, while long-time listeners can identify how a playing partner can affect the guitarist's sound. With the force ...

Devouring the Guilt: Not to Want to Say

Read "Not to Want to Say" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Insouciance is not the correct word to describe Not To Want To Say by the trio Devouring The Guilt. The music is not “cool" or '"ndifferent" as much as it has an equanimity or a casualness not commonly found in free improvisation. This release, which follows the trio's eponymous debut (Amalgam, 2017) and Prison Planet (Kettle ...

Ghost Trees: Intercept Method

Read "Intercept Method" reviewed by Mark Corroto

John Coltrane and Rashied Ali might not have been the first to record as a free jazz duo with Interstellar Space (Impulse!,1974), but the pair did set the bar for future performances from the likes of Frank Lowe and Rashied Ali, Peter Brötzmann/Peeter Uuskyla, Anthony Braxton/Max Roach, and Joe McPhee/Hamid Drake. Admittedly, this genre of music ...

Peter Brötzmann / Sabu Toyozumi: Triangle - Live At OHM 1987

Read "Triangle - Live At OHM 1987" reviewed by John Sharpe

Free improvisers must be some of the world's most readily connected collaborators. They can strike up an instantaneous dialogue without the need for rehearsal or even a common language. Of course they might not always hit paydirt, but that uncertainty is part of the attraction. However, German reedman Peter Brötzmann, who was a regular visitor to ...

The Jazz Detective Strikes Again

Read "The Jazz Detective Strikes Again" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Producer Zev Feldman, like Joe DiMaggio, has done it again. In May of 1941, DiMaggio began a major league baseball hitting streak. People followed his exploits game after game and hit after hit. DiMaggio's amazing record of 56 consecutive games still stands to this day. Same can be said of Feldman. His detective work, finding rare ...
