sample the album:
Combining the rhythms of African music with those of American big-band jazz and the free playing of British improv, The Brotherhood of Breath produced "one of the most vital and life-affirming big-band jazz ever played by anyone, anywhere.&" (BBCi). The Brotherhood released only a handful of recordings in its lifetime, and the band was rather forgotten until Cuneiform released Travelling Somewhere in 2001, which gained rave reviews. Bremen to Bridgewater contains two CDs of previously unreleased live recordings made in Germany and England during two very different periods of the band's career. The German radio recordings were made on June 20th, 1971 at Lila Uele, a well known jazz club in Bremen. The English recordings were made at the Bridgewater Arts Center, during two tours that the band made with different lineups in February and November of 1975, and feature some of the very last recordings of trumpeter Mongezi Feza, who died in December of that year. The band's lineups on these recordings are a veritable who's who of British free jazz, and include Harry Beckett, Marc Charig, Elton Dean, Nick Evans, Harry Miller, Chris McGregor, Louis Moholo, Mike Osborne, Evan Parker, Dudu Pukwana, Alan Skidmore, Gary Windo and others. In addition to the music, this CD features an 12 page booklet with rare photos and liner notes by Francesco Martinelli.
