This album documents the historic meeting (dated 1979) between Max Roach and Anthony Braxton, or rather the encounter between the tradition and the avant-garde in modern jazz. A profound dialogue between two major figures, the father of modern drumming and the young lion of creative music. A milestone in the evolution of African-American creative music. 'The music in this album is a result of our belief in a continuum that links the present with the past. Our spontaneous improvisations are true to those well defined principles basic to African American culture. Thank you for listening.' - Max Roach / Anthony Braxton.
