Mapping the Systems of Anthony Braxton’s Sound

Anthony Braxton 1976

Plenty of musicians claim a wide-ranging set of artistic influences. But few can conceive of a stylistic retinue as dizzyingly diverse as the one that inspires saxophonist and composer Anthony Braxton. When he accepted the NEA’s bestowal of “Jazz Master” status, back in 2014, he gave a speech in which he cited the saxophonist Paul Desmond (best known for his work with Dave Brubeck), as well as the University of Michigan marching band and John Philip Sousa. Later in the same talk, Braxton described “taking classes on the great music of the Native Americans – their ghost dance music, for instance.”
