Multiinstrumentalisten och kompositören Anthony Braxton föddes i Chicago och blev en viktig kugge på stadens livaktiga moderna jazz-scen på 60-talet. Helt följdriktigt blev hans första LP i eget namn just detta album på chicagoetiketten Delmark. Braxton spelar själv hur många instrument som helst, från altsax till dragspel. Med sig har han Leroy Jenkins, violin m m, Leo Smith, trumpet m m samt Richard Abrams, piano m m. Allt redovisat på konvolutet, som också har en text av John Litweiler.

"...All but one track -- "The Bell" -- are graphically titled, so there's no use mentioning titles because computers don't draw in the same way. There is a sonorous unity on all of these compositions, which Braxton would draw away from later. His use of Stockhausen is evident here, and he borrows heavily from the melodic precepts of Ornette Coleman. The use of Jenkins' violin as a melodic and lyric device frees the brass from following any kind of preset notion about what should be done. Abrams plays the piano like a percussion -- not a rhythm -- instrument, and colors the textural figures in, while Smith plays all around the open space trying hard not to fill it. This is a long and tough listen, but it's a light one in comparison to For Alto. And make no mistake: It is outrageously forward-thinking, if not -- arguably -- downright visionary. Braxton's 3 Compositions of New Jazz is an essential document of the beginning of the end." (Thom Jurek, allmusic.com)
