Peter Brötzmann - solo!
This year Kongsberg Jazz Festival returns to “The Barn” as a concert venue. And there will really be “barn dancing” – but perhaps not in the way we usually think!
It’s no exaggeration to call Peter Brötzmann a true legend. He has been a central figure on the jazz scene since the sensational Machine Gun was released in the tumultuous year of 1968. Brötzmann can be wild and rebellious, but he can also be lyrical and downbeat. Sometimes, when he plays solo, we can hear echoes of the ballads of Ben Webster and Coleman Hawkins. However, the aggressive heritage of Machine Gun is never far away.
Want to hear where Brötzmann lands today? Then come to the concert!
Concert start: 13:00
