Artist: MCPHEE AND JOHN SNYDER, JOE
Title: Pieces of Light
Format: LP
Label: Bo Weavil
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
"First time vinyl reissue of Joe McPhees classic CJR LP from 1974. Repress of the original artwork. Another reissue of ultra-rare, 70s McPhee vinyl. In 1974, Pieces of Light was recorded and released by the CJR label. McPhee had picked up on the growing electronic music movement, and recorded a set of duos on saxophone, trumpet, E-flat alto horn, flute, modified Nagoya harp, chimes and voice with John Snyder, who played an ARP analog synthesizer. The result is a stunning six-part meditation on how best to combine acoustically and electrically-driven sounds. McPhee at times anticipates and complements the limited wave forms of his playing partner, but the two dont try to mimic or play on top of each other. They shift, meld, and counter each other. McPhee at times plays extremely jazz-tinted phrases, in alien vistas created by Snyders synth, without ever coming off as quaint. Definitely something a little different from the fire music of the time. Joe McPhee (tenor saxophone, trumpet, cornet, flugelhorn, alto horn, flute, chimes, harp, voice); John Snyder (synthesizer)." - Bo Weavil.

Title: To Be Continued
Format: LP
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Kye is proud to present the release of To Be Continued, a previously unpublished 1973 performance, documenting the first meeting of Joe McPhee and John Snyder. "On a Sunday afternoon in the summer of 1973, a group of mostly non-professional musicians/music lovers, literally friends and neighbors came together to present a concert in a communal ritual ANCIENT TO THE FUTURE, for friends and neighbors at Holy Cross Monastery in West Park, NY. The Episcopal order graciously made their facilities available for concerts in 1968 and my first recordings for CJRecords -Underground Railroad in 1968. Just a few months earlier I met John Snyder, who had recently acquired an ARP2600 analog synthesizer and immediately the "what if" scenario of such a musical adventure moved from imagination to reality." (Joe McPhee). Mastered by Jason Lescalleet at Glistening Labs, To Be Continued arrives in a full color hi gloss sleeve, featuring archival photos from the concert, and comes with an insert containing program notes/recollections by Joe McPhee, and a download card to access the complete unedited 60 minute concert recording. Edition of 500 copies." - Kye.
