Peter Brötzmann / Joe McPhee Duo
Epistrophy Arts presents the debut performance of free music icons Peter Brötzmann and Joe McPhee.

Epistrophy Arts is proud to present this unique collaboration between two Free Jazz heavyweights, the German saxophonist Peter Brötzmann and the American saxophonist and trumpeter Joe McPhee.

Peter Brötzmann "has abundant nonstandard technique, a vocabulary, but what impresses in his playing isn't the execution so much as the force of presence. He recently turned 70, and he sounds almost invincible," writes the New York Times. Brötzmann is the most vital European Free Jazz musician of his generation. His 1967 album, Machine Gun, remains the most celebrated document of the early-Free Jazz movement, and ever since, Brötzmann has pushed the boundaries of jazz experimentation. He has worked with Derek Bailey, Han Bennink, Willem Breuker, Andrew Cyrille, Anthony Braxton, and Evan Parker, and has led numerous large ensembles since the 1960s, including the Chicago Tentet. He received the Vision Fest's Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011, and was the subject of two documentary films released in the same year.

Since his emergence on the creative jazz and new music scene in the late 1960s, Joe McPhee has been a deeply emotional composer, improviser, and multi-instrumentalist, as well as a thoughtful conceptualist and theoretician. McPhee's first recordings as leader were Underground Railroad (1969), Nation Time (1970), and Trinity. He has since worked with Pauline Oliveros, Ken Vandermark, Evan Parker, Mats Gustafsson, Chris Corsano and Peter Brötzmann. His recent releases include a duo recording on Clean Feed with the bassist Ingebright Haker Flaten, and a duo recording with the multi-instrumentalist Eli Keszler.
