HAINO & PETER BRÖTZMANN, KEIJI - EVOLVING BLUSH OR DRIVING ORIGINAL SIN (CD)


Studio recordings of duets for reeds (Brötzmann) and vocals (Haino). "Texture and rhythm; restraint and release; space and fullness. Brotzmann senior toured Japan in April this year, and exceedingly memorable shows were played with Fushitsusha and Evan Parker amongst others. You couldn't be there, but luckily he also found time to step into the studio with Keiji Haino. This is the result, and a most worthy addition to Haino's on-going duo series (previous collaborations with Barre Phillips and Chiato Yamada) it is indeed. Brötzmann's style of late has tended to hold in check all that legendary ferocity, and the occasional outburst sounds all the more powerful for the surrounding restraint. His use of space has developed into something really special, and it is here where the link with Haino is perhaps the strongest. With a number of dates behind them the sense of telepathic communion and empathy between Haino and Brotzmann on this release is almost tangible. Two contemporary 'legends' at the peak of their powers. A superb exhibition of controlled alchemy." (Alan Cummings)
