Peter BrotzmannNoise Of Wings ... CD
Jazzwerkstatt (Germany), 1999. Used ... $12.99
Peter Brotzmann blows it loud, long, and open here – very much in the mode of some of his best Okka Disk work from the same period – caught in a trio with Peter Friis Nielsen on electric bass and Peeter Uuskyla on drums! The use of the electric instrument draws a bit of a link back to the Brotzmann sound of the 80s – yet the overall approach is less in the Machine Gun mode, and still very much in the freewheeling Brotzmann style of the early and later years. Titles include "In My Old Rags", "Not A Soul", "Nine Eleven Blues", "Blue Jay In A Snowstorm Waiting", and "Noise Like Wings". CD

Peter Brotzmann/Fred Van Hove/Han BenninkBrotzmann/Van Hove/Bennink – 1971 (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
JG/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1971. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99
Very rare, very obscure material from this important free jazz trio of the German scene in the 70s – a set that features one long performance originally issued on the JG label, despite the FMP-like image on the cover – plus two more tracks from the same year that appear here for the first time ever! "Just For Altena" offers up the power trio at their best – very freewheeling piano from Fred Van Hove, drums from Han Bennink, and tenor from Peter Brotzmann – with intensity that may well surpass the Machine Gun years, and an understanding of each players strengths that means that there's almost no tentative moments at all in the improvisation! "Filet Americain" and "ICP No 17" are from earlier in 1971 – and showcase a different, more sonic side of the trio – some tones that are at the farther end of hearing, which ruminate then blossom into bolder statements, but still often with a very abstracted approach to each instrument. Great stuff – and every bit as essential as any of the better-known Brotzman recordings of the time! CD
(Beautiful package – with a heavy Japanese-style paper sleeve!)

Peter Brotzmann/Han Bennink/Fred Van HoveBrotzmann/Van Hove/Bennink – FMP 130 ... CD
Atavistic/Unheard Music Series, 1973. Used ... $9.99
A seminal set from the European free jazz scene of the 70s – and a record that may well represent the start of a key second chapter of all players involved! While the key tension of many early Peter Brotzmann albums have the saxophonist trying to push his instruments past their normal sonic limits, the approach here is different – in that all of the crazed, complicated, and dissonant sound bursts seem to be based on a stop/start dynamic – real back/forth energy that has the players trading off in a sometime whimsical manner – but still with all the raw power you'd expect! The group seems to be enjoying themselves, too – with lots of weird, borderline oddball reed sounds approximating animal calls, rolling piano lines that seem to be ironic riffs on boogie woogie and rock, and odd tonal shifts that really keep things interesting. The trio features mighty drums and a range of unusual percussion from the great Han Bennink – who also knows how to allow for space as well – plus Brotzmann on alto, tenor, baritone, bass sax, and clarinet – plus Fred Van Hove on celeste and piano. Titles include "For Donaueschingen Ever", "Nr 7", "Gere Bij", "Konzert Fur 2 Klarinetten", and "Paukenhandschen Im Blaubeerenwald". CD

VariousInternational Holy Hill Jazz Meeting ... CD
Be! (Germany), 1969. New Copy ... $16.99
A legendary moment in European free jazz – performances all recorded on a single Sunday in 1969 – but which stand as some of the most powerful music of the time! The vibe here is often in the best spirit of early FMP, or maybe the most outside work of MPS – and the recording quality equals the best avant jazz on both labels – with very long performances on each track that represent the pinnacle of all players involved! One side alone is worth the price of admission – a searing track titled "Finally", performed by an octet with Peter Brotzmann at the helm, alongside Evan Parker on tenor and soprano sax, Fred Van Hove on piano, Paul Rutherford on trombone, Peter Kowald on bass, and Pierre Favre on drums. Favre returns on "Let's Talk About The Weather" – played by a trio with Kowad on bass and Irene Schweizer on piano. Other tracks include "Five To Five" and "Gluga Gluga Blues" by the Joki Freund Quintet, "In Memory Of John Coltrane" by Marion Brown, "Vibration" by the group of saxophonist Joe Fiera and trombonist Ed Kroger, and "Circus Live" by a quartet led by Rolf Kuhn on electric clarinet, with Joachim Kuhn on piano and Stu Martin on drums.

✨✧ Peter Brotzmann/Fred Van Hove/Han BenninkCouscouss De La Mauresque ... LP
FMP (Germany), 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of three albums this group recorded at the Free Music Market in Berlin in August of 1971 – all of which feature the trio joined by Albert Mangelsdorff on trombone. The album features two long tracks – "Couscouss De La Mauresque" and "Wenn Mein Schatzlein Auf Die Pauke Haut" – each of which run for a side apiece, and the trio of firey youngsters drives Mangesldorff into some of his best free playing on record from the early 70s.

✨✧ Sonore (Gustafsson/Vandermark/Brotzmann)No One Ever Works Alone ... CD
Okka Disk, 2004. Used ... Temporarily 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".

✨✧ VariousBorn Free – The 12th German Jazz Festival 1970 (9CD set) ... CD
Be! (Germany), 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A huge document of this incredible year in jazz in Germany – a time when free styles were breaking out all over, alongside some of the groovier styles of the MPS scene as well! This beautiful box documents the 12th German Jazz Festival in three different concerts – amazing music that really shows the transformation that was taking place at the time – and which is still revolutionary all these many years later – making for a listening experience that makes us feel like we're hearing music from the future, and not over 40 years in the past! The range of performers here is amazing – and CD 1 features a long performance The German Festival Big Band – with reeds from Emil Mangelsdorff, Heinz Sauer, Joki Freund, and Gerd Dudek; trombones from Albert Mangelsdorff and Peter Herbolzheimer, trumpets from Frederic Rabold and Manfred Schoof, guitar from Volker Kriegel, bass from Gunter Lenz, and drums from Kurt Bong and Rolf Hubner – plus four long tracks from the Dave Pike Set, with stellar vibes and guitar! CD2 features the Albert Mangelsdorff Quartet, with trombone from the leader, and alto and tenor from Heinz Sauer – plus a group led by Wolfgang Dauner on piano, clavichord, and ring modulator – with Ack Van Rooyen on trumpet, Joki Freund on tenor and soprano sax, Peter Herbolzheimer on trombone, and Gerd Dudek on flute and tenor. CD3 features Karin Krog singing on two long tracks penned by Dave Pike, who plays vibes in a group that also includes Albert Mangelsdorff on trombone – and the rest of the CD features Phil Woods European Rhythm Machine, with Gordon Beck on Fender Rhodes. CD4 features two long tracks by the Klaus Doldinger Quartet with Ingfried Hoffmann on organ; three more tracks from the Frederic Rabold Crew, with the leader on trumpet and alto horn; and one more track from the Jazzworkers Quintet. CD5 features the Frankfurter Trio Fur Improvisation, with Christian Mollers on clarinet, Wolf Burbat on flute, and Klaus Henning Usadel on bass – plus one long track by Just Music with Alfred Harth on tenor and clarinet, Johannes Kramer on guitar, Dieter Hermann on trombone, and Franz Volhard and Thomas Stowsand on cellos – as well as two tracks by the Modern Jazz Quintet Karlsruhe, which features Herbert Joos on flugelhorn and Wilfried Eichorn on reeds. CD6 features a long track by Free Jazz Group Wiesbaden – and another long track from Limbus 4 – a group that features a lot of flutes, percussion, and diverse instrumentation. CD7 features a reading of "F*ck Der Boere" by the Peter Brotzmann Group, which also includes Evan Parker and Willem Breuker on reeds, plus Malcolm Griffiths and Paul Rutherford on trombone – as well as Derek Bailey on guitar and Han Bennink on percussion. The CD also features a long track by the New Jazz Trio of trumpeter Manfred Schoof. CD8 features work by the Alexander Von Schlippenbach Trio, the Pierre Favre Group, and the quartet of Joachim & Rolf Kuhn. CD9 is maybe the most amazing – as it features a long track that merges German players with the Art Ensemble Of Chicago – billed as the European Free Jazz Orchestra Of The Art Ensemble Of Chicago – as well as work by Gunter Hampel with Jeanne Lee. An insanely wonderful package – filled with free, avant, and groovy jazz we've never heard before! CD

✨✧ Peter Brotzmann/Friis Nielsen/UuskylaMedicina ... CD
Atavistic, 2004. Used ... Out Of Stock
A recent recording from the trio of Peter Brotzmann, Friis Nielsen, and Peeter Uuskyla – done in a freewheeling style that really recalls the power of Brotzmann's classic work of the 70s. Brotzmann himself plays a nice range of horns that include tarogato and alto clarinet, in addition to his usual tenor, and a bit of alto – and Uuskyla's drumming is incredibly fierce, and full-on – really driving the session with a sense of urgency that's clearly heard in Brotzmann's horn. Titles include "Rocket Tango", "Justicia", "Bones & Beans", "Some Ghosts Step Out", and "Artemisia". CD
