Performance 9-1-1979

One of several outstanding live small-group records Braxton recorded in the mid-to-late 1970s (with Dortmund 1976 the (not unjustly) most heralded), Performance was issued initially on LP as Performance 9/1/1979, and was first issued on CD as Performance (Quartet) 1979.

It has been unavailable for years, and has recently been reissued by HatHut/HatOlogy. http://www.hathut.com/covers/610b.gif

Good news, good news.

I'll give my copy a listen soon and try to collect my thoughts about this recording.

The Dortmund 79 was one of the best performances (if not the best) of the 4tet at the time... is nice to be here
