CD LR 572/575 | 19 Standards (Quartet) 2003
Anthony Braxton

In 2003 Anthony Braxton Quartet went on a European tour which had become legendary. The results of the tour were two 4-CD sets entitled “23 Standards (Quartet) 2003” and “20 Standards (Quartet) 2003” released by Leo Records. Both sets received tremendous critical acclaim. The writers noted that Braxton performed jazz standards in an entirely new way. Rather than echoing, aping or diminishing the tradition he was reinventing it making both the past and present much richer than it was before. Now we are releasing the remaining 19 standards (no repeats) – 4.5 hours of music. The set is a must not only for Braxton’s followers but for all jazz fans at large.

CD LR 548/549 | Duo (Heidelberg Loppem) 2007 Anthony Braxton, Joëlle Léandre

This is the meeting of two giants of improvised music that music lovers have been waiting for for a long time. The double CD documents this meeting in its entirety. Anthony Braxton played sopranino, soprano and alto saxes, and contra-bass clarinet. One can write volumes about this meeting, yet two words would be sufficient to describe what happened in that Heidelberg Cafe on March 17, 2007 – pure magic. Extensive notes by Stuart Broomer.
CD LR 518 | Composition 367b Anthony Braxton Quartet (Moscow) 2008
Performed in Moscow on June 29, 2008 with Anthony Braxton on sopranino, soprano, alto saxophone and contrabass clarinet, Taylor Ho Bynum on cornet, flugelhorn, piccolo and bass trumpets, Mary Halvorson on electric guitar and Katherine Young on bassoon, to the ecstatic Russian audience, this is one of the best Mr. Braxton performances ever both in terms of music and quality of recording. If it doesn’t become an all-time classic I shall swallow my tongue.

CD LR 500/501 | Ninetet (Yoshi's) 1997 | Volume 4 Anthony Braxton

The fourth double CD documenting the legendary five-day residence of Anthony Braxton’s ninetet at Yoshi’s in 1997. These performances at Yoshi’s happened to be a milestone for Anthony Braxton in developing his concept of GTM (Ghost Trance Music). The line-up of musicians is the same as on previous volumes, the liner notes provided, as before, by Steve Day in the form of a listening diary.
