A fine reissue of two long out-of-print Braxton albums
(4 out of 5 stars)
"This Cd, comprised of two long unavailable recordings, is a welcome addition to Braxton's immense catalog. The recordings cover Braxton's career in two periods, 1969 (with Leo Smith and Leroy Jenkins) and 1976 (with Richard Teitelbaum). Braxton's collaberation with Tietelbaum is particularly intruiging, as it provides a fairly early example of the creativity they explore further on later albums. However, Braxton's session with Smith and Jenkins, while it is a true meeting of masters, seems to lack much of the provocative creative interplay that makes albums such as "This Time" and "Anthony Braxton" (also titled "B-X-N-O/47A") classics. Nevertheless, this album is a wonderful document of the virtuosity of these innovative musicians who have made some of the most daring experiments in music in the late 20th century."

"first 2 compositions are a bit meandering, although still very much an enjoyable and interesting listen with many beautiful moments in the nooks and cranies. I keep picturing getting lost on a foggy day in the hills somewhere.
second 2 pieces of electro-acoustic improvisations focus on deep textured tones from Braxton's auto sax playing with/against waves of other-worldly electronics eminating from Teihttp://ec1.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/x-locale/communities/reviews/preview-your-review.giftelbaum's analog synths. these are Amazing."
