Trio x at Bop Shop Records
Since his emergence on the creative jazz and new music scene in the late ’60s and early ’70s, Joe McPhee has been a deeply emotional composer, improviser, and multi-instrumentalist, as well as a thoughtful conceptualist and theoretician.
With a career now spanning over 37 years and more than 60 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.
Some guidance for the uninitiated Joe McPhee listener, from Time Out New York:
“… His magical take on avant-garde sax remains one of the wonders of the scene. He still has one of the most beautiful tones on the planet, even when he’s reaching for jazz’s outer limits.”
Mr. McPhee can be seen on tour through out the United States, Europe, Canada and Asia. To find out more about upcoming events check the official artist’s website www.joemcphee.com, which is updated regularly.
New Yorker Dominic Duval is one of the finest and most prolific bassists on the contemporary scene, having played and recorded with some of the greatest names in jazz and new music. Duval’s continuing tenure with pianist Cecil Taylor’s trio has cemented his reputation as one of contemporary music’s more important figures. Duval is comfortable and can be seen performing in any number of genres, including modern classical, jazz or music which defies classification.
The bassist has performed and recorded with such notables as saxophonists Joe McPhee, Ivo Perelman, Glen Spearman, and Mark Whitecage, composer Pauline Oliveros, trombonist Steve Swell, pianists Joseph Scianni and Michael Stevens, trumpeter Herb Robertson, and drummer Paul Lytton, David S. Ware among many others.
Duval leads and co-leads a number of ensembles himself, including the critically-acclaimed C.T. String Quartet, Trio X, “The Wedding Band”, and the Dominic Duval String Ensemble. Duval’s solo bass CD, Night Bird Inventions, was a Top 10 pick in the Coda Magazine critics poll, and his String Ensemble CD, State of the Art, was chosen one of the year’s best in the Jazziz Magazine poll.
Jay Rosen has earned a considerable reputation as a first-rate drummer, lending his talents to diverse musical projects. He has performed throughout Europe, Canada and the U.S. and/or recorded with: Mark Whitecage, Paul Smoker, Herb Robertson, James Carter, Anthony Braxton, Jaco Pastorius, Ivo Perelman, Steve Swell, Michael Bisio, William Parker, Roy Campell, Sonny Simmons, Dominic Duval, Joe McPhee, Matt Shipp, Charles Gayle among many others.
