Peter Brötzmann Octet
Machine Gun

Machine Gun is pretty much ground zero for a certain strain of European free improvisation: the explosion that sparked a thousand future fires. Peter Brötzmann is of course the headline figure here, but his Octet also contains such fantastic players as Han Bennink, Fred Van Hove and Evan Parker, all playing their hearts out. High energy reissue on vinyl from Cien Fuegos.

Peter Brötzmann
I Surrender Dear

I Surrender Dear is the result of the Trost label inviting the mercurial saxophonist Peter Brötzmann to Vienna to record cover versions of his favourite jazz tunes over the summer of 2018, something that had always been an artistic goal of his since the beginning of his long and illustrious career.

Hot Lotta

Reissue of Hot Lotta, a one off meeting between some of the greatest minds in German and Finish free jazz. Recorded in 1973, this is a truly savage example of what my jazz hating colleagues would call 'difficult sax music'. You can get a good idea of what this sounds like by looking at pictures of headliner Peter Brötzmann playing his instrument.

Brötzmann / Schlippenbach / Bennink
Fifty Years After... Live at the Lila Eule, Bremen 26.05.2018

Fifty Years After... Live at the Lila Eule, Bremen 26.05.2018 by Brötzmann/ Schlippenbach / Bennink is a live celebration of Peter Brötzmann’s 1968 album, Machine Gun. The free jazz saxophonist assembled a trio of  Alexander von Schlippenbach on piano and Han Bennink (who played on the original album) on drums to play the album live. It went so well they decided to release it, and here it is.

Peter Brötzmann Octet
Machine Gun Alternate Takes

Accompanying their new reissue of Peter Brötzmann’s legendary Machine Gun album, Cien Fuegos also provide some fascinating outtakes from those fiery 1968 sessions, never before pressed to vinyl. We get an alternate spin on Machine Gun itself, plus the first take of a composition that never made it to the finished album. A must for fans of the Brötz.

Peter Brötzmann / Heather Leigh
Sparrow Nights

Lap steel guitar expert Heather Leigh, whose announcement of an upcoming “pop” album for Mego has caused some excitement, is still cranking out the avant-garde ones as well. Here’s another for trusty Viennese ear-troubler Trost with prolific producer of reedy rackets Peter Brötzmann. Leigh is on lap steel, Brötzmann on various clarinets and saxes. Their interactions sound like a highly enthusiastic dialogue in which each participant continually interrupts the other - but always in friendly agreement.

Peter Brotzmann / Harry Miller / Louis Moholo
The Nearer The Bone, The Sweeter the Meat

Legendary saxophonist Peter Brotzmann meets two South African musicians on a reissue of this classic FMP session on Cien Fuegos. Brotzmann deploys his full range of reeds, from the lows of the bass clarinet to the dizzy highs of the soprano sax. Harry Miller grinds away on his double bass and Louis Moholo keeps up a constant spattering rhythm on the drums, all facilitating free jazz joy.

Peter Brötzmann / Heather Leigh
Ears Are Filled With Wonder

Much excitement around for this first time collaboration between free-blowing sax overlord Peter Brötzmann and pedal steel scourer Heather Leigh. Ears Filled With Wonder shows an interesting improvisational dynamic, with as much time spent conjuring atmospheres as exploding them. Vinyl release on Trost.

Konstrukt and Peter Brötzmann
The Message: Live at Kargart

Konstrukt have a knack for getting super high-grade guests in for their recordings, and The Message: Live at Kargut is no exception. The big man of European free saxophone, Peter Brötzmann himself, joined the quartet for a long-form, high-energy exploration. 200 double vinyl copies, on Holiday Records.

Peter Brotzmann & Han Bennink

1977 in the Black Forest near Aufen, two men make nature music. Broztmann and Bennink wander through trees, streams and lakes. With an arsenal of clarinet, viola, birdcalls, sand, land, water, air and sax, this repress out on Cien Fuegos takes you to many places. All recorded live out in the open world, Broztmann and Bennink know to get things done. With reed in the water experiments, tree bark improvisations and saxophone to the sky meditations. Bring your record player outside and become one with it all. 

Peter Brotzmann / Han Bennink / Van Hove

West Berlin in 1975. We have a free city. We have three men. All aching to be heard and with no rules on how. This record shows a more gentle side of Brotzmann’s sax, Bennink banging on the drums or anything he finds and Hove then exploring the whole piano. Get your ears ready for bird song experiments and cocktail jazz treachery. Yes, we are free indeed. Out on Vinyl LP.

Peter Brotzmann & Han Bennink
Ein Halber Hund Kann Nicht Pinkeln

Brotzmann & Bennink are situated at the very core of European Free Improvisation, and this is a vinyl reissue of their very first duo recording, from 1977. A piece of history then, but also a very playful and fresh sounding set of music, in which the duo occasionally leave their usual saxophone / percussion territory to dabble in clarinets, violas, and even banjos! Good fun.

Peter Brötzmann / Sonny Sharrock

This live recording from the archives of Peter Brötzmann was mixed by Lou Malozzi in Chicago, mastered by Martin Siewert in Vienna.  Peter Brötzmann: alto/tenor/bass-saxophone, tarogato Sonny Sharrock: electric guitar Recorded live : 09/03/1987, JAM/ KULTURFABRIK IN ESCH/ ALZETTE/ LUXEMBURG Drawing & Artwork by Brötzmann
