sample the album:
"Anthony Braxton live at the Rainbow Gallery, Minneapolis in September of 1979. Having made his name as one of America's most uncompromising and prolific jazz modernists, by the late '70s Chicago-born saxophonist-composer Anthony Braxton had long since abandoned attempts to categorize his work, preferring it simply to be termed "creative music". Combining elements of minimalism, free jazz and modern classical with virtuoso technique and fiery intensity, he worked solo and with bands and orchestras throughout the '70s. This release presents the entire set originally broadcasted on KBEM-FM at the end of the decade."-Hi Hat
