Blake, Ran & Anthony Braxton
A Memory Of Vienna
Released in: Switzerland
"There had been no plans, no preparation. It was a completely spur-of-the-moment decision. Nine years later, I don't remember whose idea it was-mine?Werner X. Uehlinger's? Ran's or Anthony's? Once we started, enthusiasmwas high, everyone jumped into it head-first and hard, perhaps a bit too hardat first. When it was over, we didn't know what we had. Now we know. Whatyou now hold in your hands is the result of fortuitous circumstance, hard work,imagination, talent, trust, and a bit of blind luck. Like all art that survives,and thrives, it is a miracle."-Art Lange
