Decoy with Joe McPhee

A pleasure to present this recording of Joe McPhee alongside Decoy, the powethouse trio of John Edwards (bass), Alexander Hawkins (piano) and Steve Noble (drums). For over 4 decades Joe McPhee 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. In a career run through with countless highlights, McPhee's work with Decoy is undoubtedly one of the peaks - do not miss!
