George Braith: Musart. CD

A completely unique album from a completely unique saxophonist!  George Braith got his start at Blue Note in a Roland Kirk sort of style, but this criminally neglected 1967 session for Prestige is very different altogether. It’s a unique blend of reeds, percussion, and some sweet electric touches— sometimes augmented by voices—with a sound that's dark and complex, almost in a Cadet Records mode.  Pat Thomas’ notes explore this multifaceted recording.
