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

✨✧ Peter Brotzmann/Han Bennink/Fred Van HoveFMP 0130 ... CD
Atavistic/Unheard Music Series, 1973. Used ... $9.99
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

Peter Brotzmann/Harry Miller/Louis MoholoOpened But Hardly Touched (180 gram pressing) ... LP
FMP/Cien Fuegos (Austria), 1980. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
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
