I can’t resist adding Anthony Braxton to this series. I discovered his music at the Princeton Record Exchange in the mid-1980s, I lived about a half hour away and I’d run down there in search of inexpensive new discoveries at least once a week. At one point, I started buying the Braxton Arista albums real cheap on vinyl…I still have ’em and eventually accumulated quite a collection of his recordings.
The cut to have here is 23c from the same album, but I can’t find it on youtube.
