Time and Anthony Braxton

8 posts in this topic

"In Time and Anthony Braxton, Stuart Broomer looks insistently at time, whether in the shape of jazz history, time’s relationship to pitch, or the unique ways in which Braxton constructs the musical moment. In approaching the dense weave of Braxton’s musical thought, Broomer references figures like Nicola Tesla, St. Augustine of Hippo, Ezra Pound, and Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers."

Spotted a boo-boo. "Spiritual" has the contrabassoon; some versions of "India" have a tambura drone. Bushell played English horn on the latter.

"The most extraordinary texture in Coltrane’s music may occur in a live version of India (itself a transformed blues originally called Mr. Knight) in which Coltrane plays soprano saxophone, Eric Dolphy plays bass clarinet, and Garvin Bushell, a man who played with Jelly Roll Morton, plays contra-bassoon drone."
