About

Sax virtuoso Anthony Braxton is a musician without boundaries or limitations, lauded upon his arrival on the jazz scene as "the new messiah, the new Charlie Parker–John Coltrane–Ornette Coleman" (The New Yorker). A master multi-instrumentalist, composer, and performer, this avant-garde artist has pushed the realms of jazz and classical music into a glorious, unique mixture all his own. A recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, he is also a founding member of the Association of the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM). Braxton appears with Taylor Ho Bynum (cornet), Mary Halvorson (guitar), Ingrid Laubrock (saxophone), and special guest Jason Moran (piano).

Performance Timing:  75 minutes, with no intermission.
