Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2007-01-26 
Free jazz led by Brotzmann's ferocious sax. A nice trio jam, with long stretches of often aggressive sax and/or trombone played over fast, supple drums. Brotzmann blows pretty hard without overpowering things; the sparse trio setup lets him move in and out of the spotlight rather casually. Mangelsdorff shows off some nice skills, expecially on the catchy track 2.

Peter Brotzmann (sax), Albert Mangelsdorff (trombone), Gunter "Baby" Sommer (drums/"horns")

1- (20:43) Slow crash into a tumbling improv of midlevel viciousness. Quieter middle, with some soft melodic sax as a segue. Final few minutes include some full-throttle sax screaming.
2- (17:14) Wispy drums intro, into a cooking groove with trombone, fast and calm, til about -10:00. Brotzmann takes over with high vicious squeaks for a few minutes, then a slower but still intense segment.
3- (4:01) Playful little march, into a swirling free spiral, fast but relaxed
