Brotzmann, Peter & Jason Adasiewicz: Mollie's in the Mood [VINYL] (Bro)

Label: Bro    
Released in: USA    

"A weighty disc in every way -- a substantial piece of vinyl, with music of unusual depth. Vibraphonist Jason Adasiewicz plays seamlessly across inside & outside contexts, his rich, deep resonance deploying sustain full on. Even so, you'd think, a lonely vibraphone would be overwhelmed by Brötzmann's stentorian tenor. But even while Brötzmann modulates his attack, Adasiewicz somehow matches him at full force, & it turns out to be a wonderfully simpatico partnership. Rambunctious tenor on "Seasons May Vary" are met with sonorous chords from the vibraphonist: the track's conclusion sounds especially Ayler-ish. "Mollie's in the Mood" features tenor playing as gently vibrato-laden as Coleman Hawkins, & it's when he switches to alto saxophone that Brötzmann's sound becomes huge. Perhaps unexpectedly, one of the musically richest releases in the Brötzmann catalogue."-Andy Hamilton, The Wire

Limited edition of 600 copies. Hand-pulled screen-printed covers on heavyweight Stoughton "laser disc" sleeves by Alan Sherry (Siwa).
