Letter to The Wire, October 2011

Thanks for the piece on Bernard Josse’s new Peter Brötzmann documentary Soldier of the Road (Wire 331). What you didn’t mention, however, is that there is also another Brötzmann doc out at the same time. This one, by René Jeuckens, Thomas Mau and Grischa Windus, is called simply Brötzmann and follows the saxophonist to Chicago Tentet gigs in London and his home town of Wuppertal.

Me, I’m waiting for someone to write the guy’s biography. Until that Herculean task is accomplished, these films will have to do.
