After Richard Teitelbaum explained the roots of his 41-year friendship (they met in a muddy Belgian cow pasture), and music collaboration (ten albums together) with Anthony Braxton, the evening’s honoree spontaneously jumped on stage with his alto sax in hand. The ensuing highly abstract set was based around Teitelbaum’s heavily processed electronic sounds that often seemed to mimic sounds of the natural world with facsimiles of raindrops, crickets and gale force winds. Braxton gracefully complimented these abstractions; and at other times completely stole the spotlight.
You can check out that set, in addition to Anthony Braxton's 12+2tet and his performance with Marilyn Crispell, Mark Dresser, Gerry Hemingway, below.
