    PETER BROTZMANN is a German artist, free jazz saxophonist, and clarinetist. Regarded among the most important European free jazz musicians, BROTZMANN played the Empty Bottle 14 times starting in 1997. His first album, For Adolphe Sax, was released in 1967 and immediately followed by the politically charged Machine Gun in 1968. Machine Gun, an octet recording often listed among the most notable free jazz albums, was originally produced under BROTZMANN'S BRO record label and later marketed by Free Music Production (FMP). Since then, BROTZMANN has appeared on over 100 recordings. In the 1980s he began integrating heavy metal and noise rock, performing several times with free jazz supergroup LAST EXIT. BROTZMANN currently has 16 albums to his name where he is listed as the solo performer or leader of an ensemble.
