Here's an album recorded in 1980 and originally released in '81 from the groundbreaking free jazz mavericks Peter Brotzmann, Harry Miller and Louis Moholo. It's a raucous and squeaky affair of course, but as the press release is quick to point out, it displays the trio's "most accessible approach". Which is to say that it's European free jazz with excellent communication and a refreshing dose of humour, with Miller and Moholo holding down restrained and sometimes relatively conventional grooves for Brotzmann to blast his saxy splatter all over.   Everyone gets their chances to show off, but Brotzmann is the dominant character of the trio, equally comfortable blowing out soft trails of loungey gentility as trails of screaming, tooting sax abuse. The lines between composition and improvisation are pretty blurry a lot of the time. They seem to know where they're going but they've got some cheeky ways of getting there. It's easy to see how his playing in this era has been a big influence on some of the big hitters who've come along since like Gustafsson and Edwards - in a way he's like a metaphorical bridge between the pioneers like Ayler and that modern lot, isn't he?   Anyway, if you love free jazz this is a top class recording, and really long too!
