Peter Brotzmann TrioFor Adolphe Sax ... LP
FMP/Cien Fuegos (Austria), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
A landmark album of free jazz – Peter Brotzmann's first record, and a hard-driving set of material that blows away most avant jazz work from the US at the time! The album takes the energy of the ESP generation, and turns it up more than a few notches – as Brotzmann blows his head off on tenor and baritone, accompanied by Sven Ake Johansson on drums and Peter Kowald on bass. The title is a reference to the inventor of the saxophone – an instrument that Brotzmann pushes way to its limits here – at a level that Adolphe never would have expected! Titles include "For Adolphe Sax", "Sanity", and "Morning Glory". LP, Vinyl record album

Peter Brotzmann TrioMayday – 1966 ... CD
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1966. New Copy ... $7.99
Some of the earliest work ever recorded by Peter Brotzmann – a rare live performance from 1966! Broztmann plays both alto and baritone sax here – already blowing with the intensity of his Machine Gun years, but working in a more stripped down setting – a trio with Peter Kowald on bass and Pierre Courbois on drums – both of whom seem to be doing everything they can to keep up with Brotzmann's intensity! The CD's more of an EP than a full-length set – running for almost 12 minutes, and featuring two songs – "Intensity" and "Variability". CD

New Peter Brotzmann/Harry Miller/Louis MoholoOpened But Hardly Touched (180 gram pressing) ... LP
FMP/Cien Fuegos (Austria), 1980. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $38.99
One of the first great sessions from FMP Records in the 80s – and an album that really shows the creative growth at the label since its start! The music is played by a very hip trio – with Peter Brotzmann on e flat clarinet, tarogato, tenor, alto, and baritone – plus Harry Miller on bass and Louis Moholo on drums – both players from the British scene who really seem to help Brotzmann find this new sort of space in his music – an ear for more subtle sound textures and tones that's spun out beautifully over the course of the double-length record. We might well say that this record is as important to the later generation of FMP as Machine Gun was to the first – and regardless, it's still an essential treasure for any fan of Brotzmann, or free jazz in general. Titles include "Open But Hardly Touched", "Double Meaning", "Special Request For Malibu", and "Eine Kleine Nachmarie". LP, Vinyl record album

New Peter Brotzmann, Steve Noble, John EdwardsWorse The Better – Live at Cafe OTO, January 2010 (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
OTOroku (UK), 2010. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Muscular angularity from the trio of reeds titan Peter Brotzmann, John Edwards on double bass and Steve Noble on drums – not as all out ferocious as some of the more frenzied Brotzmann recordings, though still plenty invigorating! The title would be sly whatever the record sounded like, but it's actually amusingly dichotomous, as this is really, really strong stuff. Brotzmann's tone is clear and fluid, and the pacing grows more and more busily as the record progresses, never flying out off the rails. Edwards and Noble are inventive and adaptable, so it's not terribly surprising that the trio works so brilliantly together despite this being billed as their first time working as unit, but it's exciting all the same! The set was recorded live at London's Café OTO in January '10. Side A: 22:40, Side B: 16:10. LP, Vinyl record album

New Peter Brotzmann/Mikolaj Trzaska/Johannes BauerGoosetalks ... CD
Kilogram (Poland), 2008. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two powerful reed players and a bold trombonist – coming together here in one hell of a trio performance! The relatively recent set stands with some of Brotzmann's most inventive music from years back – and the legend himself plays tenor, alto, tarogato, and clarinet – alongside some beautifully expressive work from Mikolaj Trzaska on alto, bass clarinet, and c-melody sax. Johannes Bauer blows these amazing notes (well, not just notes, but lots of cool sounds too) on trombone – and the triangulated image on the cover is a great illustration of the new vision the trio reaches together. Titles include "Goosetalks", "Duck Call", "Two Birds In A Feather", "The Albert Is Missing Signal", and "Peacock's Nightmare". CD
