Interview by Mary Halvorson and Joe McPhee
The Miniature Minotaur asked, and received. Joe McPhee is a keeper of the post Ayler torch, but has a way of winnowing into any nook or cranny his playing partners create - a skill that has enabled him to meet such unexpected pairings as the Nihilist Spasm Band and the Cato Salsa Experience. And that made a pairing with guitarist Mary Halvorson seem a natural. She has erupted in post-punk sci-fi delight with Kevin Shea in the band People and has been a mainstay in Anthony Braxton's recent projects. Both of them lead celebrated projects of their own, and we're pleased to have them in a first-time meeting on our airwaves. -- Kurt Gottschalk via WFMU
