For Adolphe Sax

(Atavistic) Used CD $10.00

The German tenor saxophonist’s first, recorded with bassist Peter Kowald and drummer Sven-Ake Johansson. This is intense, unrelenting free jazz with little in the way of clear structure or melody. Apart from a few brief moments of quiet during “Sanity,” this stuff just doesn’t quit, with Brötzmann’s consistently abrasive, high-pitched wailing leading the charge and the other two members stirring up a pretty good ruckus themselves (Kowald especially gets in a good string-sawing bass solo on “Morning Glory”).
