4.80 5

A trio of Anthony Braxton alumni take on some of the master's amazing compositions – played here in free-flowing modes by the group of Marilyn Crispell on piano, Marc Dresser on bass, and Gerry Hemmingway on drums! The compositions are all Braxton numbered formulas – those incredibly difficult math-based modes that initially seem intimidating, but which, to the right set of eyes, can become beautiful platforms for improvisation and musical expression – as you'll hear in the riveting performances on the set! Titles include "Composition 116", "Composition 23C", "Composition 69B", "Composition 40N/40B", and "Composition 108C/110/69Q".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
