Anthony Braxton is an enigma. His music has always been challenging and he has never compromised. Consequently, some of his compositions have been too far serrated or too densely layered. Nevertheless, in the overall scheme of his musicianship he has elevated his concepts to a dazzling level. He nails the latter sensibility here, and it is all to the good that he has players who rise to the challenge brilliantly. What makes it all the more striking is that they saw only one composition in advance of the recording. The first tune is quirky

In his liner notes to this disc, Bill Shoemaker relates that the members of Braxton 's group for this date had spent a good deal of time studying his "book," expecting various past compositions and sound territories to be explored for this recording date. When they arrived for the session, however, they were met not only by new Braxton pieces, but by an entirely new approach on the part of the composer: the inauguration of what would come to be known as his Ghost Trance Music. Generally, this sub-genre is characterized by a repeated unison melodic line played in evenly stressed.

The Bass is inaudible on my version. I don't know what it is. Which is a big problem as Kiki Midorikawa is the Bass player (one of the best). I also found this problem on Gary Peacock's Denon Label album....so it must be the Denon Label pitching what is commonly known as........"Goose Eggs".....
