Artist: BROTZMANN, PETER
Title: Long Story Short
Format: 5 CD Boxset
Label: Trost
Country: Austria
Price: $58.00
"Long Story Short, the festival organized as the 25th edition of the Unlimited Festival in Wels, Austria (November 2011) designed a festival around Peter Brötzmanns musical practice -- not a retrospective, but a representation of the contemporary musical spheres that Brötzmann and his comrades are investigating today. Eighteen performances in this box document Brötzmanns close ties to the Chicago scene, his inclination to work with Japanese artists, his cultivation of old and new friendships from New York, his admiration for African musicians and collaborations with his European friends. The extensive compilation emphasizes the vitality and variety of Brötzmanns current work and documents a historical moment of the Unlimited Festival. These were special days with very special performances, intense experiences for everybody involved -- musicians and audience alike (the venue was completely sold-out months before). After having started to work regularly with Peter Brötzmann in 2011 with vinyl reissues of his FMP-works of the 70s on Cien Fuegos and some of his current projects on Trost, the label is especially happy to present these recordings as a 5CD box monument. Artists include: Sonore, Chicago Tentet with John Tchicai, Michiyo Yagi, Okkyung Lee, Xu Fengxia, Masahiko Satoh, Takeo Moriyama, Joe McPhee, Maallem Mokhtar Gania, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Michael Zerang, Tamaya Honda, Jason Adasiewicz, Abu Toyozumi, Dieb 13, Mats Gustafsson, Martin Siewert, Keiji Haino, Bill Laswell, Hamid Drake, Jeb Bishop, Mars Williams, Kent Kessler, Hairy Bones, Eric Revis, Nasheet Waits, DKV Trio, Massimo Pupillo, Paal Nilssen-Love, Full Blast, and Caspar Brötzmann Massaker." -Trost.

Artist: BROTZMANN, PETER & HEATHER LEIGH
Title: Ears Are Filled With Wonder
Format: LP
Label: Trost
Country: Austria
Price: $23.00
"Ears Are Filled With Wonder, the debut release from the duo of pedal steel player Heather Leigh and reedist Peter Brötzmann, blows the old adage about improvised music somehow not being best appreciated via the recordings to beautiful pieces. This is a music that demands re-visiting, that seems to alter, slightly, every time it is played, with new details emerging, new relationships of tone and style, new romance, even. Recorded during a mammoth stint in Kraków, Poland, where Brötzmann and Leigh played as part of big bands, trios, quartets, and duos, this duo performance represents the diamond heart of the sessions, an improvised set that bears little relation to what either of the players has achieved outside of its prodigious gravity. We mentioned romance and really Ears Are Filled With Wonder, a play on a line from the poet Kenneth Patchen, showcases the full reach of Brötzmanns rebel lyricism, his lover man style, now smoky, seductive, late night, now roaring and vibrating with energy. Leigh plays it extremely subtly, sometimes fixing on the most suggestive detail and from there spinning luscious webs of repeat-time bliss that make for some of the most psychedelic and otherworldly settings of strings and horn. Elsewhere the two of them tear the roof off with tactile fuzz and horn ascensions. Its a music of organic depth, of endlessly evocative unfolding, as themes bloom and sigh and disappear and arise and it feels curiously out of time, even as both players push their instruments into futuristic configurations. As such it doesnt sit neatly in either players extensive catalogs. . . . Ears Are Filled With Wonder is a coming together of two of the most original voices on their respective instruments and the title reflects the joyful uncovering of a whole new way of listening and relating. Indeed, it might well be the first ever freely improvised electric pedal steel and saxophone duet ever put to tape. Either way it is one of the most startlingly beautiful combinations of players and temperaments to orbit the European jazz scene in years. And this is only the beginning. So hold tight." - Moshe Idel, Ronda, Spain, February 2016.

Artist: BROTZMANN, PETER & SONNY SHARROCK
Title: Whatthefuckdoyouwant
Format: CD
Label: Trost
Country: Austria
Price: $18.00
"There is only one prior release existing of Brötzmann and Sharrock as a duo (vinyl-only on Okka Disc 2003). This live recording from the archives of Peter Brötzmann was mixed by Lou Malozzi in Chicago, mastered by Martin Siewert in Vienna. Sonny Sharrock was one of the first American free-jazz guitarists. He played in the 60s with Miles Davis, Pharoah Sanders, Roy Ayers and many other greats. His career started again in the beginning of the 80s when he met Bill Laswell, who hired him to form the free-rock-jazz-noise quartet Last Exit (with Ronald Shannon Jackson and Peter Brötzmann) between 1986 and 1990. German legend Peter Brötzmann is one of the most outstanding saxophone players in the current international free-jazz scene, continuing to go on tour and release with various musicians. Recorded on March 9, 1987 at Jamkulturfabrik in Esch/Alzette, Luxembourg. Drawing and artwork by Brötzmann. Design: Brötzm/Untiet. Peter Brötzmann (alto/tenor/bass-saxophone, tarogato); Sonny Sharrock (electric guitar)." - Trost.

Artist: BROTZMANN, PETER, FRED HOPKINS & RASHIED ALI
Title: Songlines
Format: Double LP
Label: Trost
Country: Austria
Price: $31.00
“Double LP version. Peter Brötzmann: tenor saxophone, alto saxophone, tárogató; Fred Hopkins: double bass; Rashied Ali: drums. Recorded by Holger Scheuermann and Jost Gebers, October 30 and 31, 1991, in Berlin. First released on FMP as FMP CD 53 in 1994. "In perhaps the most understated performance of his entire career, German saxophone giant Peter Brötzmann played in a trio with American free jazz legends Fred Hopkins and Rashied Ali back in 1991 at the now mythical Total Music Meeting. . . . Brötzmann appears to have been in awe on this date so great is his restraint. There are literally no passages in the entire concert where he attempts to push his way through the rhythm section to get to the other side. No mean feat when you consider the mans powerful personality both on and off the stage. But Hopkins was a founding member of Air with Henry Threadgill, and Ali, of course, played with John Coltrane. Given these proceedings with their haunted, hunted, beauty, it would be fair to say that -- even on his own compositions -- the mighty Brötzmann was humbled in the presence of these great musicians. Does that mean he was humbled by them? Hardly. Brötzmanns playing here is so fiery and lyrical, so completely focused on his rhythm section that he turns harmonies on their heads and finds intervals in places where the only thing that should be happening is free blowing. He is the bands leader by the force of that lyricism and restraint. He makes room for the other players to move through and around him rather than behind him. His sheer musicality is wondrous. Hopkins and Ali are no strangers to each other -- there is telepathic communication; the shift from one modality to the next is seamless and grounded, each player by the other. There are six compositions on this record; it comes off as a very intense, extremely quiet kind of blowing gig, where this trio were looking to discover things about each other and the music they were making. As a result, it is one of the finest performances issued from that festival, and a landmark in Brötzmanns career in particular." - Thom Jurek, AllMusic.
