Peter Brötzmann Chicago Tentet - At Molde 2007

Ten years of Chicago Tentet. A live event for celebrating an extraordinary group of musicians, active since a decade, led by Peter Brötzmann and involving some of the most important figures of the contemporary improvised music scene.
Recorded during the 2007 European tour, at Molde Jazzfestival, Norvay (July 20th), it consists of three compositions showing all the expressive force and spontaneity of these free improvisers.
"At Molde 2007" is a recording that could narrate all the accumulated experience and the communicative capability of this ensemble; a decade of genuine artistic effort by the Tentet from Chicago.
