Braxton, Anthony : Quintet (Tristano) 2014 [7 CDs] (Braxton House/Firehouse 12 Records)

Label: Braxton House/Firehouse 12 Records    
Released in: USA    


7-CD set of Braxton's interpretation of the music of Lennie Tristano and associated colleagues including Billy Bauer, Connie Crothers, Warne Marsh, Sal Mosca among others.



"[...] Switching lanes again, it's the legacy of swing-specifically, the music composed by midcentury pianist Lennie Tristano and his associates-that anchors another 7xCD box, titled Quintet (Tristano) 2014. This is the release that is most explicitly for the Braxton-diehards who have kept track of his prior "jazz standards" projects. Though for those listeners, there is idiosyncratic value here, too. In contrast with an earlier investigation of this composer's work (the much easier-to-digest Eight (+3) Tristano Compositions 1989), here Braxton plays not a lick of saxophone, instead holding down the piano chair in the group. In conversation, he's straightforward about his limitations on the instrument. ("I don't kid myself!" he recently told The New York Times. "I'm a self-taught piano player who tries to continue learning more.") But he is capable of bringing a blocky, Sun Ra-derived touch to Tristano compositions like "Lennie's Pennies."-Seth Colter Walls, Pitchfork Media



Box set with 7 CDs each in color mini-album sleeves with images of the band and composers, plus a 16 page color booklet with liner notes and recording information.
