Snakelust (to Kenji Nakagami)



Peter Broetzmann  Tenor and alto saxophone, Bb clarinet, Tarogato | Toshinori Kondo  trumpet, electronics | Massimo Pupillo  electric bass  | Paal Nilssen-Love  drums


Recorded live in Lisbon, at the 2011 edition of the festival Jazz em Agosto, “Snakelust” is the most fantastic upbringing, to this date, of the newest Peter Brotzmann’s electric project, Hairy Bones. The band with Toshinori Kondo, Massimo Pupillo and Paal Nilssen-Love is what you would expect crossing the music played by Last Exit, his assault brigade completed by Sonny Sharrock, Bill Laswell and Ronald Shanon Jackson, with the one more recently presented by Die Like a Dog, also including Kondo, but with William Parker and Hamid Drake filling the iron-solid rhythm section. There are some substantial differences, anyhow: a more pronounced punk / metal edge of the Aylerian kind of free jazz offered to our ears. No wonder, knowing that bassist Pupillo comes from the noise-jazz Italian group Zu and that Nilssen-Love is the propulsive motor of The Thing, Mats Gustafsson’s mix of the new thing and the stoner rock aesthetics. The documented concert was voted by Portuguese critics as the last year’s very best – now it’s your time to judge.
