"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!"
