The Giuseppi Logan Kickstarter Project - New 180 Gram Vinyl Album From Legendary Sax Player
The Giuseppi Logan Project delivers a new album from a rising avant-garde jazz player of the sixties who has been lost to the music world for over 30 years. The supporting players are stellar in their own right featuring ace jazz pianist Cooper Moore, bassist Larry Roland, and the unique electric violin of Tracy Silverman. The release is a limited edition 180 gram vinyl album with hi-res digital downloads available if you don't own a record player. The campaign to fund releasing the finished album is running on Kickstarter now and will close by April 30th.
A contemporary of Ayler and Coltrane, Logan is perhaps best known for his 1964 ESP release,The Giuseppi Logan Quartet which features Logan on tenor and alto sax, Pakistani oboe, clarinet, and flute, backed with a piano-bass-drums trio featuring drummer Milford Graves, pianist Don Pullen and bassist Eddie Gomez. The 1964 release is labeled one of the most uncompromisingly out" free jazz records of its time in its review at AllMusic.
