Prior to a local engagement in Lexington, Kentucky, iconoclastic European free jazz saxophonist Peter Brt?zman discusses his intensely revolutionary Chicago Tentet, featuring ten of the world's finest free jazz musicians in an all-out jazz assault. Peter?Brt?zman tells Chris Comer why the Chicago Tentet got together in the first place, the concept behind it and why it's one of the most satisfying ensembles of his career. Chris asks Peter to elaborate on The Chicago Tentet's place in the tradition of the large ensemble in jazz. Peter describes 'graphic scores' and how they are played, and what he'd say to a jazz fan who 'just doesn't get' his music. Towards the end of the interview Chris engages Mr.?Br?tzman on his early influences - Peter saw Sidney Bechet once!?
