Anthony Braxton, Sun Ra, Art Ensemble of Chicago: the Newton Abbot connection

I’ve just been speaking to a record producer.

His label has produced over 600 CDs. At least 15 of them are by the iconic Russian now-disbanded Ganelin Trio. More than thirty are by Anthony Braxton. He has recorded Marilyn Crispell, Sun Ra, the Art Ensemble of Chicago. His label will celebrate its 30th anniversary this October.

So what are the cream boarding and the benches in the picture about? They are in the quiet Devon town where this record producer lives. Rather quietly, it seems.

A British success story?

He tells me he’s looking forward to the mini-festivals which will celebrate his label’s anniversary.

In Moscow , St Petersburg and Skopje.
