Brötzmann-Mangelsdorff-Bennink - Berlin 1985

Here's another one I posted on dime a few months ago. I got it from there and brought it back into circulation as a little Brötz-flood was going on. This features longstanding musical partners Brötzmann and Han Bennink along with the great Albert Mangelsdorff.

Brötzmann can also be heard on first and on the third of seven shows so far posted here by the various formations of the Radio Jazz Group Stuttgart (more to come!). Both shows incorporate the classic Brötzmann/Van Hove/Bennink trio into larger settings under the leadership of Wolfgang Dauner.
In addition to that, I also posted one of my own recordings by the power trio of Brötzmann/Pliakas/Wertmüller.

Albert Mangelsdorff was featured in several posts here, though of course they still fail to give you a complete picture of this great musician:
Albert Mangelsdorff Quintett - Tuttlingen 1961
(an early edition with Bent Jaedig and Hartwig Bartz in place of Heinz Sauer and Ralf Hübner)
Albert Mangelsdorff & Lee Konitz - Hannover 1982
(an NDR Jazz Workshop just in duo!)
Albert Mangelsdorff & Jean-Rémy Guedon - Saarbrücken 1997
(another duo setting with tenor sax this time)
He can also be heard on a portion of my Bud Shank homage, and finally he's also on the first of those Radio Jazz Group Stuttgart shows!

The presence of Bennink of course is always a plus! He can be heard with the ICP Orchestra on this 2001 show, and he also makes the list of great drummers to be heard here (that link will show to the way to the two Radio Jazz Group Stuttgart shows with Bennink - it's of course the same two as those with Brötzmann). And finally, Bennink was on one of the first posts that actually contained music, a Sonny Rollins trio concert from 1967 (shared in MP3 format).

Always rewarding to witness the level of inspiration Mangelsdorff derived from a very free format. He was well-rounded enough to play in all contexts, but he really shined with these two partners. Thanks.
