CD Reviews

One of the Best Braxton Albums
Michael B. Richman | Portland, Maine USA | 06/23/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"With so many hat Art CDs becoming increasingly hard to find, it is great to see that Anthony Braxton's classic "Town Hall (Trio & Quintet) 1972" is still available. This live recording features four performances from May 22nd at the famous New York venue. The first two are trio recordings -- the medley of "Composition 6 N" and "Composition 6 (O)," and Jerome Kern's "All The Things You Are" -- featuring Dave Holland on bass and Philip Wilson on drums. The final two tracks, "Composition 6 P I" and "Composition 6 P II," feature the quintet of Dave Holland, John Stubblefield on tenor sax and flute, Barry Altschul on drums and Jeanne Lee on vocals. Anyone who appreciates early Braxton recordings, Chick Corea's "Early Circle" or Dave Holland's "Conference of the Birds," will thoroughly enjoy "Town Hall.""
Everything Mr. Michael said is true, but...

"...let me just add that the sound is awsome too. Great listening experience on top of some of the best music ever.
Its a shame this and other cds by braxton are so hard too find..."
