    BEYOND QUANTUM (2008) brings together three avant-garde jazz legends in drummer Milford Graves, bassist William Parker, and saxophone titan Anthony Braxton for a lengthy session of free collaboration. Recorded in Bill Laswell's studio and released on John Zorn's Tzadik label, BEYOND QUANTUM is an experimental jazz lover's dream. The level of musical communication, as expected from such seasoned veterans, is near telepathic. Graves's strategically disjointed pulses, Parker's muscular bass, and Braxton's total command over the saxophone, which ranges from challenging melodic explorations to squeals and skronk (not to mention wordless vocals and voicings), work together brilliantly on this session, resulting in a contemporary avant-garde gem.

  • Critic Reviews
    The Wire (p.59) - "Each of the five 'Meetings' has its own character, and the three players switch modes frequently and seamlessly....Grave's drumming, meanwhile, is minimal, but thoroughly expressive -- as ever, he does a lot with a pared-down kit."
