Taylor Ho Bynum
Institute of Contemporary Art Boston, MA
02. Composition n° 349
The Philadelphia performance has been for sure the first 2005 American date of this astonishing ensemble as it has been reviewed here [http://www.bagatellen.com/archives/frontpage/001062.html] and here [http://www.allaboutjazz.com/php/news.php?id=7694].
The Victoriaville date is the only one officially documented [on Victo 108] and posted here [http://inconstantsol.blogspot.com/2009/04/anthony-braxton-sextet.html]. This post is decidedly from another tape source being of lesser audio quality but adding to the Victo album a little, marvellous extra: an about five minutes encore (wrongly posted twice at the end of composition 345 and as a file apart).
The november Boston date, posted here, has been the second, and last, american date of this group at least to my knowkedge. It was recorded the day after the Philadelpia concert that meet a strongly positive reception.
Down here an in-complete list of the group performances.

It's my aim going on little contributin' to the Anthony Braxton gigography, and to the Henry Threadgill discography. In the next times I will add to this post all the infos I will found about this group and the DCW trio (both with Taylor Ho Bynum) and post here some more Henry Threadgill unofficial (broadcast and private recordings) date.
If someone here is interested in this two projects every effort will be wellcome.
In particular about the Threadgill discography project [http://discography.backstrom.se/threadgill/] I've found till now at least more than 100 audio documented dates and tens of non documented. I've just began to listen to some date to attribute correct titling and personnel infos but it is a very hard and long work.
On the other hand the Braxton discography and gigography, marvellously mantained by Jason Guthartz and otthers, constitute in my opinion a reference project. Here You can easily find every useful link [http://www.akamu.net/braxton/discography.htm]
