Anthony Braxton (also referred to as B-Xo/N-0-1-47a or Composition 6g) is an album by Anthony Braxton released in 1969 on the BYG Actuel label. It features performances by Braxton, Leroy Jenkins, Leo Smith and Steve McCall.



The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow states "The music performed... is very freely improvised, includes "little instruments" for their variety in sound, and contrasts high-energy playing with space... and is far from accessible but is generally worth the struggle".
