15th volume in the BYG Actuel series; gatefold sleeve, 180 gram vinyl. "The first one of Braxton's two albums originally released in the BYG/Actuel series... this one was recorded at the Studio Saravah in Paris on September 10th, 1969 with the help of Leo Smith (trumpet), Leroy Jenkins (violin) and Steve McCall (drums)." From the Jazz Actuel boxset's liner notes: "Anthony Braxton's approach to music is a fantastic, almost alchemical fusion of elements, involving academic schemata, chess master logic, and a firm belief in humanist cosmogony... the magic of deep, intuitive jazz improvisation led Mr. Braxton into serious intercourse with the alto saxophone... he was conversant with the concepts and constructs of John Cage, Karlheinz Stockhausen a.o., yet the music's roots were equally evident as coming from an avant-jazz background... the blend was genuinely revolutionary..." -- Thurston Moore & Byron Coley.
