Someday someone will write a history of modern music that will free us of the false dichotomies such as high vs. low, improviser vs. composer, classical vs. everything else…
 …The written materials Joe passed out to the musicians for Red Morocco was minimal, sometimes more visual than musical, but always modest.  Everyone was seated in the same room, in a circle.  The music heard on this recording occurred late in the day, when Joe felt a certain clarity was occurring…
…The results are an elegant, shimmering, ringing music, like colors spiking across the plane of a Monet canvas, or spinning like a piece of Calder’s kinetic art; a constantly evolving, deeply sonic performance, collectively improvised, and decentered; a self-organizing musical system, with minimal input or constraints from outside.  Giardullo is willing into existence a music that occurs beyond his control.  This means he has to surround himself with musicians who are accomplished, but also open, free to take chances, and willing to be themselves, no matter what. John Szwed, excerpt from the liner notes.
