Braxton's 1972 Town Hall, NY concert with the great lineup of Dave Holland, Philip Wilson, John Stubblefield, Jeanne Lee, and Barry Altschul, an early example of his numbered compositions
Braxton, Anthony Trio & Quintet
Town Hall (Trio & Quintet) 1972
Released in: Switzerland
"By 1972 we still only had a vague and partial knowledge of Braxton's more formal nature. So Town Hall was a "coming out" in one sense, albeit an atypical one. In some ways, this concert reminds us of Braxton's roots in the collective experiences of the AACM, and at the same time anticipates the multi-logics and expanded resources of later endeavors."-Art Lange, from the liner notes
