*Anthony Braxton has been one of the most adventurous of free-jazz composers and performers, and his work for Arista was never a great commercial success, but the artistic triumphs of much of it are monuments (he's particularly proud, with good reason, of his compositions in the For Four Orchestras album, released as a boxed set of vinyl in quadrophonic, with one 40-musician orchestra per channel). Braxton, who at one point made most of his money playing chess while continuing his working on his music, also talks a bit about chess and mathematics and what they mean to him.
Todd Mason (and thanks to Richard Robinson for continuing to nudge me toward the Mosaic sets, that this footage is up in part to promote).
