From Anthony Braxton’s Tri-Centric Orchestra:
Trombonist Dan Blacksberg strives to expand the range and role of trombone in improvised music. This Philadelphia native also happens to be highly sought-after in the world of klezmer, leading and co-leading several groups that have earned titles such as “the world’s greatest Hasidic hardcore band” and “klezmer power-trio” (that group, Leviticus, includes TCO’s own Tyshawn Sorey). Read on to learn about the many contexts in which Dan works as a musician and about the current commissioning project for his group Archer Spade.
The Tri-centric Foundation has released a solo piano performance from Cory Smythe undertaking Anthony Braxton‘s Composition 30. The release is free for subscribers.
