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 two new tracks on WFMU’s Free Music Archive:
– 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!
