Iron Curtain. To describe the communist wall in Europe, hard, cold, inhuman. Bamboo Curtain. To describe the communist wall in China, traditional, old-fashioned xenophobes. The Diamond Curtain Wall? Oh, that’s Anthony Braxton’s new jazz trio with pals multi-instrumentalist Taylor Ho Bynum and unique guitarist Mary Halvorson. There’s a fourth member, the Super Collider, a “real time audio synthesis programming language”.
