      *Peter Broetzmann (Germany, reeds) * - the living legend of the European
      new jazz.
      He has exemplified European improvised music for over 40 years and
      participated in countless international collaborations.
      A founder of European Free Jazz movement, his work includes
      collaborations and recordings with Last Exit (with Bill Laswell, Sonny
      Sharrock and Ronald Shannon Jackson), Evan Parker, Misha Mengelberg, and
      Borah Bergman. Recent projects include Die Like a Dog (with William
      Parker, Hamid Drake and Toshinori Kondo), his homage to Albert Ayler,
      the Chicago-based Broetzmann Tentet and many more.
      His first album Machine Gun released in 1968 still represents the
      reference for the musicians and critics. Considering his 40-years-career
      and more than 100 albums, but also many current projects, Broetzmann is
      still one of the most influential figures of the new music. *

      /Shades of LAST EXIT (sans guitar) are evident, and FULL BLAST also
      frequently conjures the essence of Brotzmann's landmark early Free
      recording "MACHINE GUN" in it's visceral intensity. Herr Br� himself
      refers to FULL BLAST as "THE TRIO" (Atavistic)
      /*CD1 "Black Hole" (rec. Zurich Radio Studio, March 08)

      "(...)extremely well recorded.(...)Hard to believe that it is only the
      end of January and already we have a contender for the best free/jazz
      disc of the year! (full review: DMG

      "(...)for you to sink your ears into over and over again. This is
      free music at its best: fire, fun, and further exploration of the
      heretofore unknown. (Tom Jurek, full review: All Music Guide
      " (...)God bless European audiences. (JazzTimes)
      "(...)Berlin's greatest underground jazz party since years. (Christian

      lebendig ohne Ende. (Jazznetz.de)
      " (...)Br�tzmann's current trio consolidates his position on the front
      line of possibilities(...)Peter Br�tzmann, the big bad wolf of jazz,
      came to London, and he huffed and he puffed and he blew your house down.
      A standing ovation coaxes the clearly exhausted trio back to the stage .

      ["There was nothing to do but surrender to this amazing performance,
      expressing the artist's total, uncompromising belief in the sheer
      physical power of sound to transform the listener- tons of deafening yet
      paradoxically blissful sounds that keep me smiling even now when I think
      about this exceptional trio. "Will the music ever end?" Not when played
      at this intensity! (Eyal Hareuveni, All About Jazz)"] *
