"Long Story Short, the festival organized as the 25th edition of Unlimited in Wels, Austria (3.-6.November 2011) ventured to design a festival around Peter Brötzmann's practice. Not a retrospective but a representation of the contemporary musical spheres that Brötzmann and his comrades are investigating today. This box documents in 18 performances Brötzmann. close ties to the Chicago scene, his inclination to work with Japanese artists, his cultivation of old and new friendships from New York, his faible for African musicians and collaborations with his European friends. The extensive compilation emphasizes the vitality and variety of Brötzmann's current work and documents a historical moment of the Unlimited-Festival. These were special days with very special perfomances, intense experiences for everybody involved - musicians and audience (the venue was completely sold out months before). After having started to work regularly with Peter Brötzmann in 2011 with vinyl-reissues on CIEN FUEGOS and some of his current projects on TROST, we are especially happy to present these recordings as a 5 CD-box monument."
