Stalwart avant-garde master Anthony Braxton meets fellow reedman Ben Opie in a pair of extended duet sessions: a Ghost Trance Musics work, and a late GTM work.

Braxton, Anthony / Ben Opie: Duets (Pittsburgh) 2008 [2 CDs] (OMP Recordings)
Label: OMP Recordings    
Released in: USA    

"Stalwart avant-garde master Anthony Braxton meets fellow reedman Ben Opie in a pair of duet sessions. Disc one is a performance of an early Ghost Trance Musics work, Composition 220; disc two is of a late GTM work, Composition 340. There are several lines blurred throughout: the division between composition and improvisation, and the differences between the two reed players. It's an intimate and exciting set of recordings."
