Peter Brotzmann TrioMayday – 1966 ... CD CD format
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 TrioFor Adolphe Sax ... CD CD format
Unheard Music Series/Atavistic, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". CD features the bonus track "Everything". CD

Peter Brotzmann/Harry Miller/Louis MoholoOpened But Hardly Touched (180 gram pressing) ... LP LP format
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 BrotzmannInexplicable Flyswatter – Works On Paper 1959 to 1964 (limited CD & Book) ... CD CD format
Unheard Music Series/Atavistic, Late 50s-Mid 60s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
While Peter Brotzmann has built his career around his formidable sax playing, in his younger days he was an accomplished visual artist with ties to the influential Fluxus movement, a pursuit that fell by the wayside as he became more entrenched in the burgeoning European free music scene. This book catalogues the gallery exhibition of these early works, with nice full color reproductions of his raw, visceral work that echoes the aesthetics of his music, and includes 2 interviews and an essay. It's also accompanied by a CD with videos of several early film works, and 2 short trio improvisations from the early 60s, the earliest available recordings from Brotzmann. CD

New Peter BrotzmannNoise Of Wings ... CD CD format
Jazzwerkstatt (Germany), 1999. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

New Peter Brotzmann/Han Bennink/Fred Van HoveFMP 0130 ... CD CD format
Atavistic/Unheard Music Series, 1973. Used ... Temporarily 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 Sonore (Gustafsson/Vandermark/Brotzmann)Only The Devil Has No Dreams ... CD CD format
Jazzwerkstatt (Germany), 2007. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Three horns, and a hell of a lot of power – the trio of Peter Brotzmann, Mats Gustafsson, and Ken Vandermark – all recorded live together in a wonderfully echoey space! The players have worked with each other often over the years – Brotzmann's older horn an inspiration for, and getting new energy from younger players Gustafsson and Vandermark – and together, the three continue to represent the cream of the crop of reed-based free jazz, especially on a performance as great as this one! Brotzmann plays tenor, alto, tarogato, and b flat clarinet; Gustafsson handles baritone, slide-sax, and flutephone; and Vandermark works with tenor, baritone, and b flat clarinet too. Titles include "Open Shore", "Driftwood", "First Feedback", and "Straight Into The Light". CD
