Alto Saxophone, Soprano Saxophone, Clarinet – Marty Ehrlich
Bass – Joe Fonda
Drums – Pheeroan AkLaff
Piano – Anthony Braxton

Anthony Braxton plays piano. We have been waiting for this, haven't we? Two discs, 10 jazz standards, over 75 minutes each disc. WOW!!! (Incidentally this is the first piece by Lennie Tristano on Disc 1). But do you think the Marsalis brothers will ever have the courage to listen to this and the intelligence to understand it?
