EXCLUSIVE! FIRST-EVER DIGITAL RELEASE ANYWHERE! (FMP 0800) http://www.fmp-label.de/freemusicproduction/labelscatalog/fmp0800.html . DIGITALLY REMASTERED. This rare duo album finds Brotzmann pairing with drummer and vibraphonist Willi Kellers, creating muscular music with strong echoes of Eric Dolphy, tango, folk, and even shards of rock and roll. An exciting album that's slipped through the cracks of history!
"Lots of exacting spilt tones, harmonics, and impressive tonguing displays are to be found here, sprinkled among Brötzmann’s ironic melodies. A quite engaging record...strong in feeling and execution." -- Cadence
"This collaboration with young drummer Willi Kellers suits Peter Brötzmann extremely well. In phrases reminiscent of Eric Dolphy, ['Edelgard'] creates a tension which discharges only briefly. '... Helaas Maar' makes South American tango music and folk songs resonate like flirtatious rock 'n' roll sax. From these references, the drums roll in free passages, which evolve into joyous, almost danceable pieces. An exciting album." - Pro Und Kontra

Mary Halvorson's compositions make my head spin. As is so often the case with her work, here, she continues to twist and subvert conventional notions of melody and modality.
Her own playing is astonishingly deft, and the arrangements complex and inventive.
But there is a warmth here, too; a playful of spirit, a restlessness to continue to change and connect in new ways.
Halvorson isn't just a jazz innovator, she's fast becoming one of of the giants of new music. Michael Mueller
