Since his emergence on the creative jazz and new music scene in the late '60s
and early '70s, Joe McPhee has been a deeply emotional composer, improviser, and
multi-instrumentalist, as well as a thoughtful conceptualist and theoretician.
With a career now spanning over 37 years and more than 60 recordings, Joe McPhee has shown that emotional content and theoretical underpinnings are thoroughly compatible - and in fact, a critically important pairing - in the world of creative improvised music.
Some guidance for the uninitiated Joe McPhee listener, from Time Out New York:
"... His magical take on avant-garde sax remains one of the wonders of the scene. He still has one of the most beautiful tones on the planet, even when he's reaching for jazz's outer limits."
Mr. McPhee can be seen on tour through out the United States, Europe, Canada and Asia. To find out more about upcoming events check the official artist's website www.joemcphee.com, which is updated regularly.
