Peter Brotzmann – The Brain of the Dog in Section (2008)

Share this:

This is saxophonist Peter Brötzmann with cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm, though it in no way sounded like Kenny G with Yo-Yo Ma. It was recorded in an “industrial urban warehouse district.” It’s on the Atavistic label (read: not easy listening). Brötzmann scares me. He claims to be playing a saxophone but half the time it comes out sounding like a flame cutting machine gone wrong. You should be scared too.
