Joe McPhee & DECOY

For over 4 decades Joe McPhee has been pursuing a beauty in his music that balances fierce attack and lyrical poetry. Over time he has absorbed the black-radical avant-garde, a love of Coltrane, Coleman and Ayler, an engagement in deep listening and a never ending openness, making him one of the most vital saxophonists in jazz and experimental music today. Now 80, he brings his best group, DECOY to Scotland for the first time, made up of Steve Noble (drums), John Edwards (double bass) and Alexander Hawkins (organ). Expect soul and funk infused deep experimental jazz from some of the best players around.
