    Dig the softer side of Herr Brötz! Inspired by -- and dedicated to -- the poetry of Kenneth Patchen, these twenty-four tracks show the reedman in a mostly melodic mood. Though there are flashes of the fury he is justly known for, Brötzmann's approach here is positively light, airy, contemplative. It is as though we are sitting in on PB's practice session-as-solo recital. Another facet of the hard beauty Brötzmann has given the world.

REVIEWS

"A monument of post-free solo reeds playing and a stunning item in Peter Brötzmann's discography, 14 Love Poems is arguably the German saxophonist and clarinetist's strongest, most compelling solo statement. This LP showcases the full scope of the man's art and presents it in a form much more enticing than what you'd expect."
--Francois Couture, All Music Guide

"For those that believe that Brötzmann’s range is limited, this solo masterpiece should prove to provide quite contradictory evidence.... A welcome reissue that sets the bar for all those that followed both from his own mind and others."
--Jay Collins, Cadence

"Few recordings have come quite as close to tapping the nerve centre of Germany’s veteran free jazz warhorse. It's a welcomingly essential chapter."
--David Ilic, The Wire
