Beautiful Lies


Format: CD

Out of stock

Reedist Peter Brötzmann, a grand old master of European free jazz, has created a body of music that is considered among the most influential and pioneering of the 20th and early 21st centuries, from Machine Gun (1968) to Full Blast (TROST 107CD/LP, 2011) with Michael Wertmüller and Marino Pliakas. Brötzmann's recording presented here, a 72-minute document made in collaboration with the Munich ICI Ensemble, consciously alternates between the intimacy of contemporary chamber music and virtuosic brilliance -- brought together within a large-scale form designed as if agreed upon in advance, yet somehow created purely out of the present moment. Peter Brötzmann: tenor saxophone, clarinet, tárogató;Roger Jannotta: flutes, clarinet, oboe, alto saxophone; David Jäger: soprano & tenor saxophones, bass clarinet; Markus Heinze: baritone & alto saxophones, cornet; Christofer Varner: trombone; Leo Gmelch: tuba, bass trombone; Martin Wolfrum: piano; Gunnar Geisse: laptop; Georg Janker: bass, electronics; Sunk Pöschl: drums.
