2019 release

Deluxe 4-CD box set documenting the one-time meeting of an all-star quartet featuring the legendary saxophonist and conceptualist alongside Nels Cline (guitar), Greg Saunier (drums), and Taylor Ho Bynum (brass).

Bynum describes the impetus for the session in the liner notes: "Much has been written about Anthony Braxton’s transformative synthesis of the trans-European and trans-African American creative music traditions: his heartfelt allegiance to influences as diverse as Hildegard von Bingen and Jelly Roll Morton, Alban Berg and Dave Brubeck, Karlheinz Stockhausen and Sun Ra.

However, anyone who has had the pleasure of engaging Braxton in conversation knows his omnivorous musical enthusiasms extend far beyond the classical or jazz canons, and include a healthy dose of American popular music, from Johnny Mathis and Frank Sinatra to the Flamingos and Bill Haley to Bob Dylan and Captain Beefheart – to the four dedicatees of this recording."
