Peter Brötzmann Chicago Tentet - Walk, Love, Sleep
posted a review of Peter Brötzmann Chicago Tentet - Walk, Love, Sleep. about 1 year ago
In my humble opinion, this is THE BEST of all of the Brotzmann Tentet releases hands down.
Vigorous, fun, and everyone attuned to each other's frequency.

posted a review of Dominik Strycharski, Ksawery Wójciński, Paweł Szpura - Prophetic Fall. about 1 year ago
This trio was a force!
It's amazing to hear the recorder used in this free-wheeling context,
and Strycharski is a master.

such flaws.

posted a review of Floros Floridis, Peter Kowald, Günter Baby Sommer* - Αφορισμοί - Aphorisms (26 Statements On The Situation). over 2 years ago
At the risk of sounding trite, this is truly "a meeting of three masters" - at undoubtedly the
best of all possible times (for this), in an ideal place (for our world), with just the right state of mind (for us).
***** 1/2 (that's 5 1/2 stars)

The final and (by quite a margin) the poorest of the three Tigersmilk releases,
otherwise a fascinating trio of gifted musicians.

Bill Frisell - East / West
posted a review of Bill Frisell - East / West. over 3 years ago
I ask you, one and all ..... how can the first disc WEST be so stellar (61/2 out of 5) and the EAST be so least?
These are the vicissitudes of improvised music on "... any given night".
