Yeah ten years later, but what an incredible drummer Han Bennick is: worth rehearsing how exciting he is still! Hope this allowed:

 

 

 

 

 

And this  from Amherst:

 

 

 

Kinda like Mingus/Richmond, Brotz/Bennink are another magical combo.

Completely agree!

The 2006 Amherst concert is available on CD on the Bro label (run by Eremite). Some of his best music is available on that label. Bought a ticket to see Peter Brotzmann in Melbourne 5 minutes ago for about USD 15. Can't believe it, every local pub band charges more.

Yeah, I couldn't believe it either when a club here in Cleveland last year was only asking for $20. Albeit, it was a strange line up, I kinda was hoping for a "Die Like a Dog" line up, but regardless, it Brotz! Now that's a steal not a deal!

Sounds right, it was a female and she was playing some weird form of a synthesizer or something. It was just him and her.

I was at both shows when Brotzmann and Leigh played the Beachland Ballroom.  Although Brotzmann is known for his intensity, I think that in duos he shows that in his heart he is actually a very melodic reedist.  I know that Brotzmann puts his pants on one leg at a time like the rest of us, but it was kind of surreal to see him perusing the Whole Foods salad bar with Leigh.  He comes across as a pretty quiet, self-effacing man, but I have never spoken to him at a gig.

I spoke to him briefly after an Oto gig and he was charming, almost self-deprecating in his description of the sets he'd just played

I've been enjoying this album a lot recently.the combination really clicks for me. Probably the first time I've knowingly listened to a "stoner rock band" as the label describes them

I interviewed him in 2002 and he was a very kind and yes, self-effacing gentleman. My interactions since then have been similar. He's a good person in addition to being a fantastic musician and artist.

Misterioso, How did you manage to buy the tickets? I've looked on a couple of sites here in Australia & there do not appear to be any tickets on sale as of yet.

The Melbourne concert is organized by a local art collective called Liquid Architecture. After seeing the announcement on PB's homepage, I subscribed to their email newsletter. A few days ago, they announced the concert and provided a link to oztix for purchasing tickets.

The venue here is quite a bit rougher than the Brisbane one and certainly not known for attracting a jazz audience. Will be interesting.

Tickets went up for the Brisbane concert (May 5) last night - they're FREE!!! but very limited numbers/space (scored two)
