Peter Br�tzmann Chicago Tentet
Tollhaus, Karlsruhe (Germany)
September 14, 2003

Thanks to all the seeders of dates from the Brotzmann Tentet's recent European tour. In celebration, here is a reseed of one of my favourites from the archives from a time when the Tentet still played compositions. I can't remember where this came from but thanks to the original seeder whose information is reproduced below.

* Wertm�ller's composition "Geb�rtig" has been inspired by Robert Schindel's novel of the same title, and been composed for the Chicago Tentet. The first performance of "Geb�rtig" took place in Berne, Switzerland, on September 13, 2003.
** "No Nothing" was performed as an encore and is incomplete
