John Cratchley If I had to choose one word to describe the wonderous German FMP label (for which Destination Out is the BC outlet) it would be uncompromising.
You will find music here fom the late 20th Century I suspect no one else would have documented with such dedication. Great artists of European and American Free Jazz and Improvisation; Iconoclasts of integrity and monumental spirit...FMP recordings used to be hard to find (mail order was the method) but no longer!!
Peter Brotzmann is synonymous with the label and,I think,one of the most important Contemporary Artists in any field. He is demanding and generally takes no prisoners (musically speaking) but richly rewarding for the open,receptive and adventurous listener. This album isn't as coruscating as some of his output,so a great place to start opening your ears and rebutting slavish convention.
