CD Reviews

Genial (by comparison) Music and Talk

"I bought this CD for the two half-hour chats between Braxton and Graham Lock (which are great fun to listen to, by the way), but I'm a fan of the music here too, which has a gentleness not evident on many of the other Braxton recordings I've heard. The solo by bassist Mark Dresser on the second CD, for example, offers a lovely respite from the usual collision-by-design pieces played by this quartet. With its mix of compositions from throughout Braxton's career, the high quality of the players, and the interview material, this is as good an Anthony Braxton primer as you can get: a great way into his music for the curious. The only thing I can think to complain about is the low mastering level (similar to the Birmingham set). You have to really crank the thing up to hear it all properly! Leo: remaster these, eh!"

"The above review is for Quartet (Coventry)1985. That's the one with the Braxton interview at the end of each disc."
