Anthony Braxton historic bootleg released today from New Braxton House Records
The Tri-Centric Foundation has issued a surprise holiday release: "Solo (Carnegie Hall)1972"
Recorded when Anthony was 27 years old, this bootleg which was discovered earlier this year is the only available audio of the event that we know of. This histori release will be offered free to our monthly members (until January 15th, 2013) and, to non-members, at a discount rate of $6.99 instead of $8.99 until the end of the year.
TCF can only offer this recording to you because of your generous support. As many of you know, TCF was revived in 2009 by a dedicated group of volunteers. We are proud to have accomplished much in three short years but we need your help to keep going. Here is an appeal from the Tri-Centric Foundation president Taylor Ho Bynum.
I am writing to you in the hope that you share my conviction that the music of Anthony Braxton can have a transformative effect on artists and audiences alike. Personally, Braxtonís artistic innovations have not just changed the way I listen to and make music, but have taught me profound lessons about community, creativity and idealism. If Braxtonís work has been similarly important to you in your life, I ask you to consider donating to the Tri-Centric Foundation.
