Universal Indians with Joe McPhee
"(Universal Indians; John Dikeman, Jon Rune Strøm & Tollef Østvang) have the partnership of another one of the “new thing” mavericks, Joe McPhee. Now, you may ask: is this a nostalgic celebration of the past, with the same kind of revisionist perspectives we find in present recuperations of the bebop formats? No. That wouldn’t be possible with the involvement of someone like McPhee, even if the American relocated in Amsterdam and the two Norwegian improvisers wanted it, and they don’t. Their guest is widely known for his achievements in renewing the free sub genre, and in his path he made important contributions to other music practices. This record reflects that openness and what you have here is the free jazz after free jazz. Intrigued enough?"
