      On June 4th multi-instrumentalist/composer/writer/teacher Anthony
      Braxton will be turning 60. 2005 is his 39th year in Creative Musics and
      38 years have passed since his recording debut on (Muhal) Richard
      Abrams' "Levels And Degrees of Light". One outcome of Braxton's
      never-wavering dedication over these four decades is a qualitively
      astounding discography of nearly 250 albums.

      Braxton's birthday provides a great opportunity for us to show our
      appreciation - not only of his music but for him as an artist who held
      out through rough times (like the first half of the 80s or the period
      after his expensive opera project "Trillium R", 1996).

      Mr. Braxton has been quite generous about his fans' sharing of OOP
      records (for example the scandalously unavailable Arista albums!) and
      even encourages it. So if you partook in trading/downloading this
      material or live bootlegs or if you simply want to make a birthday
      present you can do this now through the "Anthony Braxton 60th Birthday
      Collection".

      The procedure: Click

      http://makeashorterlink.com/?Q123432FA

      or

      http://tinyurl.com/baffd

      Both links lead to the following PayPal page

      paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_xclick&business=gregory%2es%2eblake%40fri
      tolay%2ecom&no_shipping=0&no_note=1&tax=0¤cy_code=USD&lc=US

      and are provided for better usability.

      The "AB60thBC" utilizes a PayPal business account. Therefore donors
      don't need to be PayPal members and can send their contributions also
      with their credit cards. Only 1.5% PP transaction fees will be deducted
      from each donation - the rest will be taken over by us.

      *Mr. Braxton will get 98.5% of the total sum of the
      contributions.*

      Once the campaign has ended (June 30th), the money will be sent to
      Braxton via check. Proof that he got it will be provided with scans of
      the transaction stub and/or a message from Mr. Braxton.

      Braxton himself doesn't know about this initiative yet.

      Please forward this mail (or only the link to the PP account page) to
      any person that might be interested in contributing to the campaign.

      Thanks in advance for any donation!

      Regards
      Greg Blake - manager of the "AB 60th birthday" PP account

        The Anthony Braxton 60th Birthday Collection is going
        to end on June 30th.

        Addresses for the campaign are
        http://makeashorterlink.com/?Q123432FA and
        http://tinyurl.com/baffd. Both links lead to the same
        page. We use a PayPal *business account* which means
        you only need access to a credit card and don't have
        to be a PayPal member. For the Birthday Collection's
        broadcast mail:

        http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Anthony_BRAXTON/message/1219

        This campaign is a rare opportunity for fans to
        collectively give Mr. Braxton something. (It's likely
        that there won't be a collection for another five
        years.)

        The donation end result and further details will be
        available at:

        PS: Thanks to the nice people from "The Wire" magazine
        who mention the collection (+ the tinyurl link) in the
        current issue.
