Six Compositions: Quartet is an album by American saxophonist and composer Anthony Braxton recorded in 1981 and released on the Antilles label. All compositions by Anthony Braxton are graphically titled and the following attempts to translate the title to text.
Anthony Braxton (who on this set plays alto, soprano, C-melody sax, clarinet, and flute) met up with his longtime pianist Marilyn Crispell for the first time on this Black Saint release. With bassist John Lindberg and drummer Gerry Hemingway forming what would be (with Mark Dresser in Lindberg's place) a regular group for nearly a decade, his quartet was off to a strong start. Braxton seems quite comfortable playing this complex music, and his diagrams (which serve as song titles) are actually fairly humorous.
