Peter Brötzmann and Full Blast

German reedsman Peter Brötzmann is a totemic figure in free music. Since the mid-1960s, he’s developed a uniquely powerful style on tenor and alto saxophones and Hungarian tárogató and worked with key figures in European improvisation and American free jazz. His high-energy trio, Full Blast, featuring Swiss rhythm section, drummer Michael Wertmüller and bass guitarist Marino Pliakas, is his longest running, and one of his most uncompromising projects to date.
