This is one of the best albums Braxton ever recorded and possibly the most listener-friendly one of them all. "Dortmund (Quartet)1976" contains four piano-less compositions recorded live. The line-up is an all-star one, which is not such a rare case for Braxton recordings, but here it really works. Drummer Barry Altschul and bassist Dave Holland demonstrate excellent rhythmic support, but the real star of the show is the Braxton quartet's newcomer, the then young trombonist George Lewis. His virtuoso soloing and almost telepathic feel for the other band members brings the music to the level of small magic.
