A live broadcast of a jazz concert, held on October 4, 1971 in San Francisco, featuring the Michael White Group, Anthony Braxton, and the Michael Nock Underground. After a brief introduction the Michael White Group perform a set of delightful music, most if not all of which can be found on the LP “Spirit Dance”. This is followed by Anthony Braxton on solo alto saxophone, playing in his unique style of free improvisation. The evening concluded with a set by the Michael Nock Underground. The variety and quality of these performances serve as a brilliant reminder of how vibrant the jazz scene in the early 1970s was, even on the West Coast! During the intermission and after the performance KPFA staffers, Roland Young, Larry Bensky, Sandy Silver, and Glen Howell discuss the music and talk to some of the musicians.
