Peter Brotzmann: saxes
Fred Lonberg-Holm: cello
Peaked-out duo recordings from one of the founders of the form and his ever adventurous, cello-torque-ing protégé. Recorded live in November 2007 at Chicago's famed HIDEOUT destination, Brö & Brother FLH combine for the first time ever in this penultimately intimate configuration.
Although "BRAINDOG" (as we affectionately refer to these hypnotic tones around here) was recorded in an ultra-industrial urban warehouse district, the resulting music is über-organic, almost onomotopaeic at points. Certainly, fans of SCHWARZWALDFAHRT (alp/ums254cd) - Brötzmann & Bennink's now classic free-jazz camping trip deep into Germany's Black Forest -- are strongly urged to check into this seminal blast.
Listen, then if you will... for: THE BRAIN OF THE DOG IN SECTION feels as if you've entered another galaxy's notion of what an aviary should sound like.
