Tentet (Wesleyan) 1999: Part 2

Compositions No. 235 and 236 were first performed during Verona Jazz, in Verona, Italy, exactly 6 months prior to the present recording. While the performances were stellar, the recording quality of the concerts was unsatisfactory, and the ensemble was reconvened for another live performance/recording at Wesleyan University. (Note: frustrated by repeatedly losing documentation of great performances to poor recordings, Braxton would hire his recording engineer, Jon Rosenberg, to travel with the ensemble for the Antwerp 2000 and Paris 2001 concerts).
