Brotzmann in 1974

Here is an amazing little rarity. I posted a clip of German saxophonist Peter Brotzmann playing with Last Exit in 1986 the other day. Here is an even earlier piece of Brotzmann in 1974 playing in Warsaw with other key members of the first wave of European free jazz, Alexander Von Schlippenbach on piano, the late Peter Kowald on bass and Paul Lovens on drums. This shows more of their humorous side than the full out assault they were capable of and it's amazing to see them all looking so young.
