5.0 out of 5 stars a good night 8 Jun 2006
This two disc set of an absolute killer concert is an essential purchase for Brotzmann fans and free jazz fans alike. It was one of those nights where everyone was on fire and playing like there's no tomorrow. With Hamid Drake on drums and William Parker on bass, the groove and pulse are always present. Fortunately, it was captured on tape and the sound is spectacular. A tremendous release by any measure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Peter Brotzmann is as good as ever 2 July 2014
Verified Purchase
Outstanding outing for a free jazz trio of impeccable credentials.Peter Brotzmann is as good as ever,in fact elegiac,in some parts of this tribute to Peter Kowald (a tribute,in fact, before his passing).And with a rhythm section comprising William Parker and Hamid Drake,old compatriots,what can on e possibly say?Incredible.It could easily have been a duo performance with these two,and would've been a compulsory purchase.They create magic together,but as a threesome,this is just dynamite.
It's just a pity jazz is a minority musical interest,and free jazz a minority of a minority,as more people should hear such magic as is contained herein.I think I like it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nuclear Spirit Trio 6 April 2007
By Pharoah S. Wail - Published on Amazon.com
Driven by my recent Brotzmann (re)discovery, I bought this double live album sometime before writing my review of Peter and Hamid Drake's Dried Rat Dog. Here we have the Unholy Trinity scouring our minds in search of any cell that has yet to witness... I don't know... something to which words don't do justice... something that just has to be witnessed... felt. Recorded on 4/10/01 with Hamid on traps, Peter on tenor sax, tarogato and a-clarinet, and William on bass (upright acoustic, of course) and doussin gouni, I was ready to give this one 5 stars before I was even halfway through the first disc on the first time I listened to it.

Brotzmann is a force of sub-atomic micro-nature. I don't mean "a force" in a blistering squealy "free-jazz" cliches way, though. Honestly, I can't decide what I think of him here. At times he's an army of robotic nano insects coursing through your DNA, somehow searching for the key to the secrets of humanity. Other times he's a flock of nitrous chickens speaking in tongues only they can decipher. Either way, he is a tone and sound master. Can anyone else say so much with color, shading and texture, yet actually blow so few "notes"?

If you're like me and believe William & Hamid to be the most nimble, capable, imaginative rhythm duo of my lifetime, just stop reading and buy this now. I've been listening to these guys for a long time (for my age), and this is easily one of the best examples of their brand of glorious, high improvisation I've ever heard. If you, me and anyone else who's read this review had been at this concert, we'd still be blathering on about it to our friends and neighbors. Heck I blather on about this cd to someone after every time I listen to it again. These guys are the premier groove unit of the western hemisphere as far as I'm concerned. They can freely scatter dust into the rings of saturn but then just as easily discover a murderous groove that has me dancing in the living room by myself.

Listen to atoms being split, hear the lonely yearnings of a baby elephant lost in a dust storm, lose yourself in this masterpiece. The only reason I give it 4 stars rather than 5 is that in headphones I wish William's bass were louder. To get him where I want him to be, Brotz is too loud for me. It's no biggie, though. I just thought maybe a super audiophile type might read this, buy it, and somehow be depressed that this isn't the single most perfect audio quality of all time. I play this on the open-air speakers and it basically makes me hallucinate. I can't begin to complain about anything as great as this.

5.0 out of 5 stars another key recording 2 Sep 2005
By Adolph Pinelad - Published on Amazon.com
This is an amazing recording by Brötzmann that shows how well these three musicians work together, or might you say live together, as it would seem in this recording that it is actually a form of living that is witnessed. William Parker and Hamid Drake complete the set, and it is very difficult to find, or better said, to pin point the elements that comprise this recording on most of the extensive Brötzmann repertoire; the beauty of this recording is that it manages to be skronk in disguise, or perhaps not in disguise, but skronk that has constructed itself into a beautiful groove, a flow of dialogue that is abrasive yet soothing, releasing... and they do groove on this one, but always with that visceral sound that gives the illusion of slight damage, of chaos being on the brink... and then they unleash it upon the interactive audience... I would feel tempted to compare this one to Songlines on FMP, although they are in most regards entirely different, they do concur in working as a showcase of sorts for Brötzmann's sound, but not a showcase for propaganda, it is just such a good recording that it never looses the listener and it becomes a maxim of these men... as always it is raw, but with that most enticing counterpoint of frailty that is so powerful... highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars A great farewell for a great man 16 Mar 2004
By Khyro - Published on Amazon.com
Dedicated to the late Peter Kowald, this double album is simply amazing. Die like a dog trio: Parker,Drake, Brotzmann in an Ayleresque ensemble relating some of the higher spiritual experiences you can attain in music. Not since Coltrane, or great spiritual music teachers has there been such inspired music. The creation of the Die like a dog quartet is suppose to be in honor of Albert Ayler who is alleged to have commited suicide by drowning himself in th East River. He had lived like a king and died like a dog. The great spiritual teacher of the twentieth century George I. Gurdjieff, told his disciples that they have to work on themselves to obtain a soul so that they won't die like dogs(sic). Coming from different spiritual backgrounds, the musicians presented here are showing clear signs of struggling with themselves, being able to let go of their ego so the communication between them can be uplifted to another level. Recorded at the Casa del Popolo in Montreal, I had the privilege to assist at that show, it was a blessing and I came out of there changed. By the way, the greatest spiritual realisation occured when dedicated to others...
