Braxton and Threadgill in London Reviewed

Source: Jazzwise.

Don’t ever let anyone tell you that the audience for avant-garde jazz is tiny, or non-existent: The Barbican’s main hall was, if not sold out, certainly very full, for this evening of music by two titans of the Chicago/AACM scene, Messrs Anthony Braxton and [recent Jazzwise cover star] Henry Threadgill; there is most certainly a sizeable number of people willing to embrace music from the freer, more cerebral end of the jazz spectrum (affirmed by the loud applause both men received at the end of their respective sets).
