”The croaks almost stumbled across each other after failing to attend a speech given by a dear lost friend.
Actually it wasn’t a speech, more the reading of a short letter, and because this reading wasn’t made publicly, attendance was difficult to plan.
The letter wasn’t in fact from a close friend either, though we are sure he would fully understand the nature of distance and how close we might almost have been.
The letter contained a poem written under the title : recent croaks---please find enclosed recent croaks ---- and was accompanied by a small cheque made out to a small literary organisation in the u.k.
The letter was handed to a member of the trio, and unforgettable in its offhand rigour was passed on as a band title. The poem was very short and signed sam.”

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. Lars Gotrich
