Echo Echo Mirror House

Echo Echo Mirror House by Anthony Braxton
Released: Jan 2013
Label: Les Disques Victo
Out of Braxton's many different conceptual "systems" of music, Echo Echo Mirror House is one of the more extreme: In performance, the ensemble plays one of the composer's newer scores, while each member is also outfitted with an iPod that carries a good chunk of the vast Braxton discography. So, amid the march-like improv, one can hear big band riffs from Creative Orchestra Music 1976 and the sax quartet piece from New York, Fall 1974 piped into the mix. But what if you don't know the old hits? There's still fun to be had in listening -- just prepare for density and an abstract sense of humor.
