The ongoing series / tradition of a Konstrukt release in august this time returns to the early beginning: the overdue double vinyl reissue of the Turkish free-formers’ studio meeting with the German Free Jazz titan Peter Brötzmann from 2008. Remastered by Kassian Tryoer at D&M, Berlin.
As written in several info sheets before, the Istanbul-based collective led by multi-instrumentalist Umut Çağlar (also member of Karkhana) and reeds player Korhan Futaci has since its formation in 2008 created an impressive catalogue including collaborations / performances with significant musicians like Keiji Haino, Joe McPhee, William Parker, Akira Sakata, Marshall Allen, Evan Parker, Thruston Moore, Michael Zerang, Alfred Harth or Alexander Hawkins – and Peter Brötzmann. The German Free Jazz titan was invited to the Deneyevi Studio in the Turkish capital in november 2008 where they recorded "Dolunay", an album that was released three years later on a small label in Turkey only. Back then a quartet with drums and percussion, guitar, reeds but no bass player, Konstrukt and their iconic guest took off on a session full of fire and fury: shrieking reeds, thundering drums andandand … Free Jazz of the wildest, most energetic and kathartic (afterwards) kind!
