Earlier today I found out that the great German bassist Peter Kowald passed away on Saturday in New York City. Kowald played with many musicians since the 1960s but is undoubtedly best know for his work with Peter Brotzmann. I have begun to listen to my meager collection of recordings featuring Kowald and now regret that I never saw him live.
I do have one interesting to thing to say about Kowald right now. Last year, in June, I was talking to thealchemist about the type of music I listen to and she said, "You mean like the German bassist Peter... I forget his last name." She wasn't a fan of improv and wasn't sure where she had heard of him but it was clear who she was talking about. I guess his music really was heard.
