Joe McPhee, Survival Unit III

Barrow Street Blues

Label: Holidays Records

Format: LPx2

Out of stock

Limited edition of 250. "This is the third and final iteration of a musical survival concept, which began in as solo project in 1969. Survival Unit III was formed in 2004 at the invitation for a recording date. Fred Lonberg-Holm, Michael Zerang and I were members of the Peter Brotzmann Chicago 10tet and by that time, we had been working together for five years. So in preparation for the recording, a tour was organized but the recording was cancelled at the last moment. Left to our own devices and thanks to the tireless efforts of Fred and Michael, we play."

"McPhee's expressions are like none other. They are not just jazz and not exactly music. Let's call them sonic telepathies." --All About Jazz
