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

New Peter Brotzmann TrioMayday – 1966 ... CD
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1966. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Peter Brotzmann, Steve Noble, John EdwardsWorse The Better – Live at Cafe OTO, January 2010 (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
OTOroku (UK), 2010. New Copy .... $26.99
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

Peter Brotzmann/Mikolaj Trzaska/Johannes BauerGoosetalks ... CD
Kilogram (Poland), 2008. New Copy .... $11.99 15.99
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

New Peter BrotzmannFull Blast (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Jazzwerkstatt (Germany), 2006. New Copy Gatefold .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Vital material from Peter Brotzmann! The set begins with a full blast of sound from Brotzmann – then moves into some equally dynamic changes that shows he definitely hasn't lost any of his power and presence over the years! Brotzmann's working here with a trio that features Marino Pliakas on electric bass and Michael Wertmuller on drums – and although both of those players add plenty to the record, it's still Peter who really dominates – handling his horns with a really bold voice, and almost getting some Last Exit-like support from Pliakas on bass. Titles aren't listed, but the set features 5 numbers in all! LP, Vinyl record album

New Peter Brotzmann/Han Bennink/Fred Van HoveFMP 0130 ... CD
Atavistic/Unheard Music Series, 1973. Used .... Out Of Stock
Another amazing set of way out jazz, and atonal sound bursts from Brotzmann – and another long lost recording once again available thanks to the Unheard Music Series. This set has the legendary scorcher working in a trio on sax and clarinet, Han Bennick on drums and all sorts of odd percussion bits, and Fred Van Hove on celeste and piano. The key tension of many of Brotzmann's recordings from the era relied on the legendary saxophonist blowing the living hell out of his instrument, while the rest of his crew at the given time struggled to stay in the same orbit. FMP 130 has a bit of a different approach, in that all of the crazed, complicated, and dissonant sound bursts seem to be based on a stop/start dynamic. The group seems to be enjoying themselves, too, with lots of weird, borderline comical sounds approximating animal calls, rolling piano lines that seem to be ironic riffs on boogie woogie and rock & roll playing, and odd tonal shifts. It may not be for everybody, but there's plenty of rewards for the adventurous! 10 tracks including "For Donaueschingen Ever", "Nr. 7", "Gere Bij", "Konzert Fur 2 Klarinetten", and others. CD

New FME (Ken Vandermark)Underground ... CD
Okka Disk, 2004. Used .... Out Of Stock
A bold statement from the Free Music Ensemble – a power trio featuring Ken Vandermark on reeds, Nate McBride on bass, and Paal Nilssen-Love on drums! The group work in a full-on mode that recalls the early power of the FMP scene, or some of the most striking work on ESP from the 60s – but given Vandermark's influence, they've also got a more open sensibility – clear in the shift from passage to passage of the album's numbered tracks, dedicated to influential heroes that include Peter Brotzmann, Paul Lytton, Joe Morris, and Joe McPhee.

New Sonore (Gustafsson/Vandermark/Brotzmann)No One Ever Works Alone ... CD
Okka Disk, 2004. Used .... Out Of Stock
A mighty mighty album that recalls the glory days of the FMP scene – a triple-talent terror that features the massive reed work of Mats Gustafsson, Ken Vandermark, and Peter Brotzmann! Given that Gustafsson and Vandermark are the two key heirs to the sound that Brotzmann first forged back in the 60s and 70s, the pairing is a perfect one – and somehow, the trio manage to find even more strength, energy, and creativity working together on this set than on any of their recent pairings. Tracks are spare, improvised, and beautifully creative – and titles include "Elements Of Refusal", "Broken Hymn", "Hammer Requiem", "Blessed Assurance Uninsured", "No One Ever Works Alone", and "Death Can Only Kill Me Once".

New Peter BrotzmannLong Story Short – Live At The Unlimited Festival, Wels 2011 (5CD set) ... CD
Trost (Austria), 2011. New Copy 5 CDs .... Out Of Stock
An amazing document of a unique musical moment – an entire jazz festival, virtually dedicated to Peter Brotzmann himself! The legendary Brotzmann not only curated the festival – filling it with some of his key collaborators and musical contemporaries – but he also plays on a fair bit of the titles here, too – in different groupings that reflect not only his long history in the European avant scene, but also his ties to Chicago, and his work with Japanese improvisers too! The package is wonderful – the next best thing to being at this exclusive event in person – and the set features 5CDs worth of music from the festival, with performances by Sonore (with Brotzmann, Ken Vandermark, & Mats Gustafsson), Chicago Tentet with John Tchicai, solo work by Jeiji Haino, the Hairy Bones quartet with Brotzmann and Toshinori Kondo, the Full Blast Trio, the DKV Trio, Caspar Brotzmann Massaker, and various other groupings with players who include Jeb Bishop, Joe McPhee, Mars Williams, Jason Adasiewicz, Nasheet Waits, Masahiko Satoh, Bill Laswell, and many others.

New Theo LoevendieTheo Loevendie 4tet ... LP
Universe Productions (Holland), 1974. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pretty amazing stuff from Theo Loevendie, a vastly underrated Dutch reed player, who blows incredibly strong here on alto and soprano sax. The group's a quartet, with Hans Dulfer on tenor, and he and Loevendie play along lines that link together Peter Brotzmann and Albert Ayler, with perhaps a bit of the choppy reed style that was showing up in the European funk scene (although not much.) Titles include "Up Up", "Troll", "Triomphe De Vienne", and "De Liebrije". LP, Vinyl record album
