Anthony Braxton Box on Mosaic
I know I am grabbing two things in a row from the New York Times, but I really like what Nate Chinen had to say about this important reissued collection of Anthony Braxton’s music. I’ve been waiting some time for this release as it holds some of my very favorite music.
Taken as a whole the collection enables a new understanding of Mr. Braxton’s complicated mind-set as he works through a host of ideas about disjuncture and continuity, form and ritual, timbre and pulse.
There’s also a lovely review of Erik Friedlander’s new one at this link to the Times.
