Playlist, Week of 2018-03-04

Just pick out any random Anthony Braxton show from the '70s... chances are it will be brilliant and kick-ass... It's starting to look like "back to the seventies" around here, what with the Chicago, and the Yes, and the Roxy Music, and the Braxton, and the Art Ensemble of Chicago... but there are plenty of other decades represented too!... Speaking of Roscoe Mitchell (was I? I was certainly thinking of him), his playing cooks on Grachan Moncur III's New Africa... definitely the highlight of that album for me... Major release on Bandcamp of Braxton's Sextet (Parker) 1993... 11 CDs' worth of Braxton playing Bird!... a little high for my budget, but it's streaming now... essential Braxton, I would say... check out "Parker Melodies, " a wonderful 34-minute deconstruciton and collage of Bird melodies and free but focused energy...
