Lars Gotrich An 8-disc (!) box set that pairs Anthony Braxton with another radical of American music, Eugene Chadbourne. Their dynamic remains one of mutual respect, deep listening and conversation, but also a lot of humor. Favorite track: Improv Two.

Mit Datsrok I finished listening to all 8 of the CDs. As a long-time fan of both Mister Braxton and Mister Chadbourne, I expected to enjoy their collaboration. However, the improvisations were even better than I expected. I get the distinct feeling that they both gave it their best and that they enjoyed playing together. The material will bear repeated listening. Congratulations to the pair!
