New Anthony Braxton Tri-Centric Foundation Releases

Anthony Braxton playing a contrabass saxophone

Source: Tri-Centric Foundation. These are two “bootleg” recordings of Braxton’s performances at this year’s Big Ears Festival in Knoxville. I attended both in person – a phenomenal experience, especially the 10+1tet. Don’t be put off by the moniker “bootleg”.  The recording quality is quite good.
