Thursday October 13 we will present an evening of new projects by two of New York's most celebrated jazz musicians: Joe McPhee and Andrew Cyrille. From work with Cecil Taylor to John Coltrane to Anthony Braxton, these two artists and the artists in their employ have been huge figures in jazz for decades.
Mr Cecil Taylor will be the subject of Joe McPhee's tribute work EROC TINU, which augments McPhee's regular Trio X (Dominic Duval and Jay Rosen) with Steve Dalachinsky (poetry), Roy Campbell (trumpet), and Hilliard Greene (bass). Andrew Cyrille puts together an unorthodx trio with maverick guitarist Elliott Sharp and analog synthesizer innovator Richard Teitelbaum.
In advance of this concert we are presenting three new tracks:
- A live recording by Joe McPhee's Urban Assault Vehicle (with Joe Giardullo, Roy Campbell, Dominic Duval, Mike Bisio, and Jay Rosen) from the Knitting Factory in 1999
- One track from the Andrew Cyrille / Richard Teitelbaum duo recording Double Clutch, from 1981 on Silkheart.
- A 40-minute interview with guitarist/composer Elliott Sharp from Ten Thousand Hours. Elliott discusses his creative development, compositional processes, and some recent projects. Plenty of great audio from some of his recent CDs as well!
