Joe McPhee Survival Unit II with Clifford Thornton: N.Y.N.Y. 1971 (recorded live at WBAI's Free Music Store, October 30, 1971) Producers note: I first heard these tapes during my visit to the U.S.A. in 1974.

The occasion was my first meeting with Joe McPhee and Craig Johnson of CJR Records. That meeting and the impact the music of these and other unreleased tapes had on me, are the reason I became a record producer. Originally this release was planed for 1988 on LP's. Due the rapid rise of the CD medium, the original plan was postponed and was eventually forgotten. 1996, 25 years later, this music/concert has been made available in a limited edition for the collectors of Joe McPhee's creations.

2006, 35 years later, this newly remastered version is the sole release to celebrate the 30th year of Hat Hut Records. ~Werner X. Uehlinger

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
