Quartet (New Haven) 2014
Warning: Last items in stock!
Firehouse 12 Records is proud to release Anthony Braxton's "Quartet (New Haven) 2014", a deluxe 4-CD box set documenting the one-time meeting of an all-star quartet featuring the legendary saxophonist and conceptualist alongside Nels Cline (guitar), Greg Saunier (drums), and Taylor Ho Bynum (brass).
This album is a beautiful realization of both concerns: idiomatic synthesis and collaboration. It is a sincere acknowledgement of some of Braxton’s rock & roll heroes, a musical embrace of some of the rhythmic and timbral constructs of that form. At the same time, it is clearly an Anthony Braxton album – dispensing with any genre-based structural imitations or limitations in its thrilling explorations of creative possibility.
Recorded June 2 and 3, 2014 at Firehouse 12 New Haven, CT.
