Biography

With a career now spanning over 40 years and more than 100 recordings, Joe McPhee has shown that emotional content and theoretical underpinnings are thoroughly compatible — and in fact, a critically important pairing — in the world of creative improvised music. Since recording The Hated Music with Paul Flaherty in 2000, Chris Corsano has been hyper-active in far-reaching corners of the free improvised world. Under A Double Moon, recorded live in Paris during a spring 2010 tour of Europe, is their first album together (and, given how phenomenally simpatico a partnership they’ve forged, we hope it’s not the last). With cover artwork by Judith Lindbloom and liner notes by John Szwed. Download coupon included.

“Dosage efficient de tempérance et de tempéraments, donc, Under A Double Moon profite de la ponctuation sur laquelle Joe McPhee et Chris Corsano ont sur l’instant organisé leurs échanges : points de suspension et d’exclamation fondus en beau discours.” - Guillaume Belhomme, le son du arisli

“Juggling success between tradition and future, Under A Double Moon is one of the most enjoyable free jazz albums of the year.” - Soundeyet

“Truly luminous.” - Scott McMillan, The Liminal

“By now there’s no debating the fact that drummer Chris Corsano knows how to hang with the heaviest, but even so, playing with Joe McPhee represents a test. Not because the Poughkeepsie-based reed and brass man is inclined to put his partners through the wringer. Quite the opposite; he brings such thoughtfulness, such an exalted sense of the importance of every sound, no matter how small, that by comparison a guy can sound gauche if he doesn’t tune in.
