ANTHONY BRAXTON’S ZIM MUSIC
Berlin 2019 [no label, 1CD]

Jazzfest Berlin. Live at the Haus der Berliner Festspiele, Große Bühne, Berlin, Germany; November 3, 2019. Very good satellite radio broadcast.

Max Allison, rcreader.com:

On June 4, 2020, the iconoclastic composer, esteemed academic/pedagogical luminary, and free-jazz firebrand Anthony Braxton turned 75 years old. To trace the course of Braxton’s career, from its beginnings in the late-1960s with groundbreaking works such as 3 Compositions of New Jazz and the double-LP solo sax masterpiece For Alto, across over 100 recordings of his live horn/woodwind performances, small group jazz-orbiting sessions, and exhibitions of his compositions for all manner of large ensembles, is to witness far-flung threads of the 20th century avant-garde tradition improbably lace together into one fully synthesized oeuvre with virtually no touchstones for comparison.

Braxton’s work long ago shattered the divide between the gritty, atonal language of improvised free jazz performance and the typically cloistered world of academic classical and minimalist composition, and he continues to expand in unexpected directions with new works that emerge to this day. Braxton singlehandedly pioneered the idiom of solo saxophone performance, proving that one person could transfix listeners in the context of an unaccompanied performance of one horn and one microphone. His branchings into orchestral compositions and pieces for atypical ensembles (for example, 100 tubas, electronic-processed choir) draw a through-line from the foundation of Stravinsky, Stockhausen, and Varèse to the catalogs of Ornette Coleman and Pharaoh Sanders to the drone-focused works of minimalist composers Morton Feldman and Phill Niblock.

  7. Twernt me above more fakes

    By U L E on Aug 17, 2020

  8. No rumors about this person. Not famous enough.

    By U L E on Aug 17, 2020

  9. Very funny david . Trump and company are definitely buffoons no doubt . But ask yourself this . Will Biden be better really? The left wing loons are pouncing on Trumps covid 19 disaster. But I’m not sure I would prefer Biden and that Jamaican / Indian mixed cunt Kamala Harris . If Trump wins it would almost be worth it just to put a scowl on all the black ape faces .

    By HHH on Aug 17, 2020

  10. Having to listen to trump bashers , Cris Homo , Rachel Madcow , Don Lemonhead, Anderson fag Cooper etc almost makes one root for Trump . Wish they would all shut up . This country is screwed regardless of who wins , A Trump win will piss off the black ape savages though, so that might make it worth 4 more years of the orange faced would be Hitler .

    By HHH on Aug 17, 2020

  11. David , imagine the priceless look on a Lemonheads and his cnn cronies faces after another Trumpster win ? Also Al Bobblehead Sharpton. As much as I think Trump is an idiot, I’d just love to ruin those clowns party .

    By HHH on Aug 17, 2020

  12. There is another Black Ape talking head on CNN . W Kamel Bell , who has a show called United Shades of America. More black ape white bashing propaganda.

    By HHH on Aug 17, 2020

  13. Hey guys , I’d rather deal with covid and Trump , than Biden and that nigger woman in the White House . The thought of all those happy niggers dancing in the streets makes me want to vote for The Donald.

    By Nelson on Aug 17, 2020

  14. Can’t stand either of them though . All politicians are scumbags.

    By Nelson on Aug 17, 2020

  15. Can u imagine that this is the best we have to elect for president. Its like trying to decide shit from shinola. I wanna see TRump win so that the black apes can get 4 more years of Rudy Giuliani type police justice. The niggers in NYC were scared shitless. They called it Giuliani time. Code foe police to beat on a nigger.

    By David Duke on Aug 17, 2020

  16. I agree Nelson. Republicrats are one and the same. They all take care of number 1 themselves. So many people start out like Omar and AOC and become millionaires. They have access to insider trading and all kinds of info we are not privy to. Pelosi and Chuckie Cheese Schumer suck and 2 idiots. Andrew Cuomo is an asshole just like DiBlasio who is married to an eggplant.

    By David Duke on Aug 17, 2020

  17. Biden is a bumbling fumbling idiot and Trump is a wannabe DICtator. Kamala’s complexion is her protection. Just think theres a strong possibility we may have AOC-All Out Crazy as a presidential candidate in 2024. We go from totalitarianism to socialism.

    By David Duke on Aug 17, 2020

  18. They call Chris Homo, Fredo from the Godfather. He is such a doucebag. He lives in the hamptons. and loves to workout with all the gayboys even though he is married. wassup with that picture

    By David Duke on Aug 17, 2020

  19. The truth is, I’d lick the dried shit off of Trump’s asshole. But then, I’m an ass-kissing, shit-eater.

    By David Duke on Aug 17, 2020

  20. Rumor has it The Donald gots a Big Un

    By U L E on Aug 17, 2020

  21. Yes David , four more years of Trump and police street justice for all the black ape savages is just what the doctor ordered.

    By HHH on Aug 17, 2020

  22. Just have to learn to live with his covid incompetence. He and his brown nosing governors like Kemp and Desantis.

    By HHH on Aug 17, 2020

  23. Old ( and I do mean old ) Joe Blow Biden is the best the demos can offer ??? Really???. And picking a half Indian , half Caribbean Ape woman as his running mate ??

    By HHH on Aug 17, 2020

  24. We need more great cops like Chauvin and Rolfe on the streets to keep order and to run those apes up the trees . A better chance of that continuing with the trumpster than with Joe Blow .

    By HHH on Aug 17, 2020

  25. David Derrick , a Georgia state trooper , shoots a 60 year old black ape who made the fatal mistake if trying to run from the long arm of the law . Sadly he was arrested and charged with murder instead of being given a public service medal . I’m sure Bobblehead Al will use this as another self promoting opportunity.

    By HHH on Aug 17, 2020

  26. I shit my pants. Feels sooo good!

    By HHH on Aug 17, 2020

  27. My condition is not improving, a change of meds didn’t help. My obsession with using fake IDs on bigO continues. I’m sad and pathetic, I masturbate constantly.

  28. It Giuliani Time. Thats what we need. Give cops free reign on these black savages. Shoot first. ask questions later

    By David Duke on Aug 17, 2020

  29. Triple h , DD . Trump is a asshole and a dumbass , but Biden is old and has a hi Yeller on the ticket . I ain’t voting, but I guess I have to hope Trump wins

    By Derrick on Aug 17, 2020

  30. Like you say , if it keeps the coons on the run , that’s a fuckin good thing . More good cops like Rolf and Chauvin is what we need . More man sized knees to the necks of them monkeys , and bullets to the back

    By Derrick on Aug 17, 2020

  31. Shoot first , ask questions later , like in the old days
