Full Blast is German saxophonist Peter Brotzmann's trio with Marin Pliakas on bass and Michael Wertmueller on drums. This is the final tour stock of the limited edition 2cd edtion of "Black Hole" containing the bonus CD, "Live in Tampere." Shades of Brotzmann's "rock" band Last Exit (sans guitar) are evident, and Full Blast also frequently conjures the essence of Brotzmann's landmark early free recording "Machine Gun" in it's visceral intensity. "Black Hole" lives up to it's moniker- and as such, is not recommended for the faint of heart, and after sensational performances at Brotzfest Tokyo and the hallowed Berlin & London jazz festivals, more high voltage is on undoubtedly the way. Undoubtedly one of the heaviest things released in the 21st century, so far. "These three men don't just rattle the house, they bring it down." -TOM SEKOWSKI, GAZETA.
