Peter Brötzmann (born 6 March 1941) is a German free jazz saxophonist and clarinetist. He studied painting in Wuppertal and was involved with the Fluxus movement but grew dissatisfied with art galleries and exhibitions. He experienced his first jazz concert when he saw American jazz musician Sidney Bechet while still in school at Wuppertal, and it made a lasting impression.

Peter Brötzmann has that unique gift of getting together musicians who are compatriots in his mission to forge unusual permutations and sounds and continuously revitalise free music. His is an ongoing adventure that gets him to explore unusual avenues and, even where it seems that the path has been trodden in the past, he leaves behind a singular impress. Ideas are constantly changed and forged on Berlin Djungle. Just as expectation has been met through roiling churn and the band ferments, in comes a trajectory into another domain. But it all falls into place and the tranquil and the tempest turn out to be perfect bed mates.
