Description: 


Brötzmann, Swell and Nilssen-Love met on stage together for the first time in Warsaw Poland in February 2015, first of 12 concerts in 13 days. The trio went off full blast and the immediate response from each member was that they were all looking forward to see where the music would take them the next 12 days. The music went all over the place. Every show was different and the music was pushed further and further. So were the musicians on stage. So was the audience. Peter and Paal have a 15-year history through various groups and know each other well. Peter and Steve had only met a couple of times in the past and now finally on stage together. Paal's first thought was that here's a trombonist who finally goes against Peter's melodies and lines. The interaction was immediate, spontaneous, hard, humble, respectful in the sense that one can also go against each other to make music. Trust was established right away and towards the end of the tour all three agreed there was more to be accomplished.
