McPhee, Joe/John Snyder - Pieces of Light

UMS completes the halcyon McPhee-CjRecords trilogy with the reissue of these seminal duo recordings by Sir Joe and John Snyder. Simply put - if Joe McPhee was born in Japan, he'd be regarded as one the country's National Living Treasures". A truly original American soul-jazz maverick and standard-bearer of the form since the mid-1960's, he is a brilliant improvising musician who plays many instruments, including saxophones, trumpets, valve trombone, clarinet, piano, and sometimes electronics. Joe is held in the highest esteem as a musician internationally- and especially throughout Europe." This is interesting in that Snyder plays an ARP 2600 synthesizer; not an instrument normally associated with free jazz or Joe McPhee.
