A review of the Complete Arista Recordings, broadcast in the US last week on NPR.
I actually like the review pretty well, except for the bit about Sousa's band marching into a wall. To me, the creative orchestra track in question is the sound of a joyful march into freedom... not at all a destructive image.
But overall, pretty solid. And great publicity for our man.
These records were my first introduction to Braxton, about 15 years ago. I have a lot of them on vinyl already, and they're some of my favorite recordings. It's great to have them in print... I would say "again," but have they ever all been in print at the same time? And wasn't "For Four Orchestras" in print for about a week?
