FIRST-EVER DIGITAL RELEASE ANYWHERE!
DIGITALLY REMASTERED! One of the rarest items in Brötzmann's discography and an album that showcases yet another side of his music. This meeting with preeminent American free jazz drummer Andrew Cyrille features barnstorming energy workouts, as well as more subdued explorations of rhythmic textures, multiphonics, and melody. Expect the unexpected, from bicycle horns to bits of "Night in Tunisia!"
Immediate download of 4-track album in your choice of 320k mp3, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire.
"This encounter between Brötzmann and the masterful Cyrille underscores the free music axiom that energy creates structure. While Brötzmann’s 'Wolf Whistle' is a vivid foray in flat-out intensity, it is Cyrille’s 'Quilt' that contains the program’s most memorable moments." - Coda Magazine
"Andrew Cyrille is perhaps the preeminent free-jazz percussionist of the 1980s and '90s. Few drummers play with a tenth of Cyrille's grace and authority. His energy is unflagging, his power absolute, tempered only by an ever-present sense of propriety." - All Music Guide
