Artist: MCPHEE, JOE & ANDRE JAUME
Title: Nuclear Family
Format: CD
Label: Corbett Vs. Dempsey
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
2016 release. "Multi-instrumental master Joe McPhee and his longtime colleague, French saxophonist and clarinetist André Jaume, joined forces for this studio recording in 1979 that was prepared but never released. It is primarily structured around pairs of tunes by Charles Mingus, Thelonious Monk, and Duke Ellington (or Billy Strayhorn), adding Ornette Colemans "Lonely Woman" for good measure. The results are stunningly intimate and show the twosomes capacity for creative interplay at a fairly early stage in its unfolding. Minguss "Pithecanthropus Erectus", which was performed by a larger group on Topology (1981), gets pared down to its essential walking-bass-ness, while Monks "Evidence" is taken apart, and solo spots by both men are as riveting as one would expect. Part of Corbett vs. Dempseys ongoing historical effort to unearth and reissue McPhees important discography, this previously unknown recording will delight existing fans and make new ones." - Corbett Vs. Dempsey
