More Information

"Chicago-based tenor saxophonist Matt Bauder brought together an impressive lineup for his debut recording, Weary Already of the Way...layering and processing the raw material until it resembled the classic electronic and tape compositions of European composers like Bernard Parmegiani as much as the ancient to the future Chicago tradition of the Art Ensemble of Chicago and the AACM...  Bauder has thrown down quite a heavy gauntlet, one that suggests a plethora of paths that the new leader will hopefully return to explore." — All Music Guide

"Reedist Matt Bauder, the latest product of Anthony Braxton’s incredibly fertile Wesleyan finishing school for adventurous young bandleaders, recently cochaired a CD, 2 + 2 Compositions (482 Music), with his eminent professor. The two cuts he penned on that disc demonstrated a keen ear for timbre and a will to abstraction." — Time Out-New York
