Joe McPhee Biography

A rare musician who is equally comfortable on brass and woodwind instruments. Benny Carter might be the only other musician that has sounded so at ease on both but Joe is a very different prospect indeed. For over 4 decades Joe has been pursuing a beauty in his music that balances the fierce attack of European free improve with a lyrical poetry stemming from Coltrane’s Love Supreme and hinting at the dark roots of his country’s civil rights protests. Joe has performed and still performs with musicians across all music: Survival Unit, Brotzmann’s Tentet, Dominic Duval, The Thing, Raymond Boni, Andre Jaume, Decoy with John Edwards, Steve Noble & Alexander Hawkins, Evan Parker amongst others.
