Grant plays tenor sax on 6 tracks and soprano sax on the other  2 tracks.

On tenor his identifiable sound and style come through strongly. When he plays soprano his playing lacks those qualities, and he loses the personal qualities that make him one of my favorite living tenor saxophonists.

I’m awaiting with interest receiving this one. Everything MH seems to turn to gold. She’s that good, IMO

nice combo of two LPs . Not familiar enough where this ranks in his output.

Anthony Braxton - Trio (Victoriaville) 2007 (Victo). My parameters were: 1) Braxton, 2) small group, and 3) Mary Halvorson. This is a good one.

I wouldn't say Bill Holman is the main point of interest here but at any rate, despite the lukewarm DB review at the time this is a nice and underrated recording obscurity IMO.
