Legendary saxophonist and composer Anthony Braxton releases the first saxophone duet recording of two ghost trance compositions. Braxton is joined by Toronto saxophonist Kyle Brenders in this double CD studio recording.

“To call a musical duet a “dialogue” implies that the music functions the way language does. The comparison is particularly tempting in the case of Anthony’s music and the “language” types that are its building blocks. Any comparison here, however, has little to do with the well-worn paths of call-and-response that may remind us superficially of conversation. It’s better, perhaps, to think of duet music in general as a historical language and of Anthony’s pieces as a beautifully original dialect in which to say what he and Kyle need to say, to each other and — thankfully — to us.”
