Anthony Braxton + Milford Graves + William Parker

My boy Mas recently sent me a copy of "Beyond Quantum" by Anthony Braxton, Milford Graves and William Parker (2008 Tzadik). All-star free jazz sessions tend to fail often depending on who puts them together (mostly by non-musician owned record labels or some random jazz enthusiasts, call'em "slectors"). This trio right here however, sounds well balanced and timeless. Big up to John Zorn for making this meeting happen.

Until next time,

Today is Martin Luther King JR's 90th Birthday

"Whatever your life's work is, do it well. A man should do his job so well that the living, the dead, and the unborn could do it no better."

...that's damn right.

Happy new year. I haven't really followed what John Zone has been up to the last few years but this one sounds pretty interesting. If you are in San Francisco this month;
