Yorick ... after listening to the one or other box of Anthony at a stretch, now it's time to dance .. and here we are, coming with lightness, great performance and I enjoy with a smile on my face Favorite track: Composition 40b.

John Coldwell Wow! This is some surprise. Much as I love the music of Anthony Braxton, it can come over as a bit academic but then I hadn’t reckoned with Pat Thomas and gang to rip that idea to shreds. Try to imagine, klezmer meets Sidney Bechet in collision with jazz funk and you have some idea of what awaits you. Dare I say we have a dance floor disc? Yes,I dare.

about

"It's such a joy you almost forget how audacious it is." - Stewart Smith, THE WIRE

An exciting live performance recorded at the festival Konfrontationen Nickelsdorf in 2006, featuring six early compositions by Anthony Braxton arranged for the band by Pat Thomas.

When Discus Music asked Pat what recording he had in his personal archive that he would most like to see released, this one was the first choice. Pat’s arrangements of these angular melodies allow Alex Ward’s stratospheric clarinet to fly over the band’s churning grooves, and much excitement was generated in the process – as can be heard from the wild audience response!
