Recorded on October 13, 1984 at Rote Fabrik in Zurich, Switzerland. Originally released in 1985 as a double LP. "What is best about Sauter, Dietrich and Miller is that they are playing what jazz should be and not just emptying the tradition through some plastic-sounding fusion of jazz as a 'universal language.' They expand the frontiers of the trance-state without resorting to formulaic repetition and take the expressiveness so natural to jazz to new heights, turning over the conventions common to European improvised music. In short, they are a cleansing experience and force us to readjust our ears to a new sonic landscape. Borbetomagus is one of the best things to come out of the United States in a long time" --Gustave Cerutti, Editor; Jazz 360° No. 73, November 1984. Borbetomagus is: Donald Miller (guitar, alto saxophone), Jim Sauter (tenor saxophone, alto saxophone, baritone saxophone), and Don Dietrich (tenor saxophone, alto saxophone, guitar).
