JAZZ CLUB / Brötzmann/Leigh

Jazz Club und Tanzrauchen präsentieren: 19:00 Einlass; 20:00 Konzert BRÖTZMANN / LEIGH Peter Brötzmann - Saxophon Heather Leigh - Pedal-Steel-Gitarre Since 2015, Brötzmann/Leigh, the duo of Peter Brötzmann (saxophones, clarinets) & Heather Leigh (pedal steel guitar), have established themselves as a formidable duo, touring extensively and electrifying audiences with their singular, dynamic group sound all over Europe, USA/Canada, New Zealand, Japan and Australia, appearing at many major festivals and playing intimate club spaces. Together they bring countless decades of experience at the cutting edge of ferocious speed-of-thought improvisation and deep lyrical soul. They have released 4 albums, ‘Ears Are Filled With Wonder’ and ‘Sex Tape’ on Vienna’s Trost Records and 'Crowmoon’ a limited, private release on BRÖ/LEIGH. Their newest studio album (LP/CD), 'Sparrow Nights’, was released on Trost Records in November 2018. There is complexity in simplicity, and Sparrow Nights is Peter Brötzmann and Heather Leigh's most enduring record to date, and their first studio album. A series of emotionally rich and boldly elucidated tonal and timbral exchanges played like compositions on pedal steel and reeds, the tracks (released as a 6 track LP and 10 track CD) are cold-forged minimalist blues motifs dragged from instrumental laments. Brötzmann’s duo with Leigh continues to trace a fresh new arc in his trajectory, and as a duo they play a new-old blues for times of complexity, noise and chaos, continuing to redefine and re-sound possibilities for improvised music.
