Brotzmann interview for JazzWeekly


I spent four years looking for, in fact scouring, record stores (fuck you Tower Records), used record stores (thank you Amoeba) and various shitty internet sites from New York to Boston to Los Angeles and Chicago for a copy of Peter Brotzmann’s Machine Gun. It was only a few months ago that I was able to find a copy of my holy grail (thank you Berkeley). Was it worth the wait? You better fucking believe it. It is, in my humble opinion, the free jazz recording of my time. What luck that Brotzmann is still as prolific as ever and I am able to witness first hand creativity in the making. It is truly an honor for me to present such a man onto our Roadshow babies. Enjoy folks, this one is a keeper. As always, I bring it to you unedited and in his own words. (click for more)
