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.

An Interview with Anthony Braxton in 1971 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 23 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Avant-garde jazz saxophonist, composer, and philosopher, Anthony Braxton, is interviewed by Roland Young, Glen Howell, and Sandy Silver, on the night before a concert of his music was to be held at the Palace of the Legion of Honor on October 10th, 1971. In his typical brash and provocative style Braxton makes a series of pronouncements, including that he can be best viewed as a frustrated scientist who makes nonfunctional music that can not be used but only enjoyed, and that music as communication is an illusion. The epitome of the cool, African American jazzman, Braxton’s edited comments, interspersed with brief excerpts of his solo performances, are as much a reflection of the times in which they were recorded as they are of the man himself. Musical Selections: [multiple brief excerpts of solo saxophone music] Genres: Jazz ;...
