Peter Brötzmann & Han Bennink
Curated by Han Bennink
Saxophonist Peter Brötzmann and drummer/percussionist Han Bennink will forever be linked by Brötzmann’s 1968 fearsome album ‘Machine Gun’. Since then, both musicians have found acclaim as restless, impassioned geniuses, crossing paths many more times; for example with the ICP Tentet and on albums like ‘Schwarzwaldfahrt’ (1977) and ‘Still Quite Popular After All Those Years’ (2004). Indeed, 'after all those years' their joint performances are like foundation stones of human growth; pivotal events that push musical boundaries that much further.
