ALTMUSIC PRESENTS: PETER BROTZMANN

Peter Brotzmann

Altmusic is proud to announce Peter Brötzmann (DE) touring New Zealand throughout May in 2014!

German saxophonist Peter Brötzmann is known worldwide for his pioneering, unprecedented and ear eviscerating technique – exemplified by his classic 1968 album Machine Gun which threw down the gauntlet for a high decibel, politically charged approach to free jazz & improvised music.”

Mr. Brötzmann is famous for a hardheaded, fulminating style devoid of any bathos. Trying to describe it sends you grasping for overheated metaphors: blowtorches, hellfires, certain Congressional libidos… he recently turned 70, and he sounds almost invincible.” – New York Times
