From Taylor Ho Bynum:

Anthony Braxton & Taylor Ho Bynum
Duets (Amherst) 2010 (New Braxton House)

Braxton’s first ever stand-alone concert DVD recording, two sets from our 2010 concert in Amherst, MA (the first time we ever played a live duo performance, and the penultimate gig on my New England Acoustic Bicycle Tour). The DVD (and audio-only download) will be available starting June 4 to members of the Tri-Centric Foundation, and available to the general public August 13.

Taylor Ho Bynum, John Hébert, Gerald Cleaver
Book of Three: Continuum (2012) (Relative Pitch)

The second album from the Book of Three, because cornet/bass/drums power trios are the way to go. Some unusual repertory, with compositions by the great Bobby Bradford, Jim Hobbs, Salim Washington, and Gerald, in addition to the group’s spontaneous creations.

The Convergence Quartet
Slow and Steady (NoBusiness)

The third album from the cross-Atlantic collective, with Alexander Hawkins (piano), Dominic Lash (bass), and Harris Eisenstadt (drums). New music by all four of us, captured live at the Vortex in London at the end of a two-week tour.

Joe McPhee and Peter Brotzmann Interview

From Folio Weekly:

If, as some critics complain, jazz is in a protracted commercial decline, then the genre’s free jazz sub-niche might as well be obscure to the point of invisibility. But that assumption would cause one to miss the upcoming seminal performance of American trumpet maestro Joe McPhee, 73, and German saxophone legend Peter Broetzmann, 72. The duo’s upcoming nine-stop tour is its first in the United States. Folio Weekly caught up with McPhee and Broetzmann — sometimes spelled Brötzmann — to discuss the differences between European and American audiences, the political and cultural ramifications of jazz music and how young people are evolving the genre.
