For the time being, I know of one Braxton tribute concert (which has a
different direction, though).
Gino Robair is prominently involved in organizing it. He wrote on the
"As part of the annual Matthew Sperry Memorial Festival, we will be
celebrating the 60th birthday of Anthony Braxton by assembling a
60-piece creative orchestra to play pieces from throughout his vast
catalog of works. The event will take place on Satruday evening, June 4,
2005 at 21 Grand, Oakland, CA. We're still working out the details of
the instrumentation and pieces, but it'll combine ensemble works, solo
pieces, sections of GTM, and a variety of other structures. I'll send
out an update as we solidify the program."
