Its kind of like this;
Like minimal but loads more notes like video-games but with more song like jazz but much more gay like old music but more current like yummy sweet but more stick like paint but more scratch like tapestry but filthily like prayer but more loud like loud groove and more rude like fingers and faces too but somehow more smelly like smelly things cooking with more chew and change like louder prayers that groove with like stinking-hot-pink in poo-brown but even more desperate-like than that like drums and Dream Musics


....but you have to listen to it tbh.

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

"Unique, inventive, brave and arresting”
Worshipful Company of Musicians (WCOM) Jazz Prize

“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. . .Surfing the crest of their exuberance is an extraordinary experience.” The Wire Magazine


“Operatic Game Boy music played by a virtuosic motley crew that’s inexplicably been hired to provide live jingles for a primetime TV show sometime in the recent past that never quite was . . .We hear the trombone run the gamut from furious chatter to muffled screams, sorrowful sighs into searing growls and back. “Virtuosic” doesn’t really cover it.”  Point of Departure

“Step forward Alex Paxton, incipient savior of difficult listening . . . formidable virtuosity. It seems to be a meditation on virtuosity: Paxton’s own take on Charlie Parker-style bebop or Paganini. . . . mountains of crisp detail that are legible when taken singly but accumulate into a surreal and overwhelming whole”
Positionen

“Alex is a bloody phenomenal composer and visionary” Prxludes.net

“What none of the litriture says is that his music is completely bonkers. The tittle track is 15 minutes long  & I loved the whole thing, it grabs your attention all the way through…I highly recommend this album it is great fun” Peter Slavid on European Modern Jazz,

“Superstar” British trombone society

“Totally missed this release until Seth Colter Walls covered it in the New York Times. In a word: wow. Alex Paxton combines elements of musique concrete, collective free-form jazz improv, and loads of humor and satire. Not much can prepare one for this music. The only comparison I might make is to Lumpy Gravy-era Frank Zappa. For those looking to stretch their ears, consider this atomic yoga. Turn it up.” Amazon - Top Review U.S.A


"The title Music for Bosch People implies a horrific set, but composer and trombonist Alex Paxton has subtlety in mind as well.  The album mingles styles and timbres in a manner that reflects the painter’s turbulent art." A Closer Listen

“Virtuosic musicians from contemporary classical, jazz and improvisation backgrounds dedicated to performing music that uniquely combines the stylistically-plural, (and communicative nature) of  ‘band culture’ and ‘outsider (bedroom) composers’,  with a rigorous creative intensity often found in ‘concert music’. Strong flavours of  jazz, groove musics, folk musics, minimalism & modernism can be often heard, incorporated into an individual expressive style.”
