Broetzmann / Edwards / Noble
The Worse The Better

Document of the first (ever!) trio performance of German saxophone lord Peter Brötzmann with London’s finest free-improvising rhythm section, John Edwards and Steve Noble, recorded live at Cafe Oto back in 2010. The sweet free-jazz meat of The Worse The Better is so delicious that the first pressing sold-out a few years back, so Otoroku have issued 500 more. Killer stuff!
