Music for Bosch People (2021)

puplished by Birmingham Record company and NMC label


“In a dark, time this music will make you smile...antic experimentalism...This is the most joyous sound I’ve heard in ages!”
New York Times

“Paxton, Like Hieronymous Bosch, is one of those rare artists who manage to make a virtue of excess.
The turbulent and joyful spirit of his music bubbles up irrepressibly in his trombone playing, and courses torrentially though his flamboyantly unpredictable compositions. Paxton revels in unlikely ingredients and improbably combinations, wilfully contrived clashes and oblique correspondences. Listening to his restless, multidirectional, poly stylistic music, with its starling simultaneities, fleeting allusions, wild flourishes and bewildering lack of fixed centres, is exhausting and exhilarating in equal measure. Clinging on to a clear sense of direction and well-defined form is simply not practicable. Yet these anarchically effusive pieces do hold together together. Surfing the crest of their exuberance is an extraordinary experience.” The Wire Magazine
