"While this is technically guitarist Joe Morris' second trio release, it's his first on CD. It's also the one most engaged with the soul/funk/R&B axis of his four areas of exploration post-Hendrix, new jazz, solo acoustic, extended techniques. Of all Morris' records, this is perhaps his most accessible and his weirdest. Accompanied by Sebastian Steinberg on bass and Jerry Deupree on drums, Morris comes up with nine tunes, all of them collective improvisations that showcase the soloing of the entire band, often simultaneously."
"A wide range of singers were invited to perform Tlahoun's songs, with the master himself sitting at the front surrounded by his family. All of the singers were very strong. It seems Tlahoun has no reason to worry about his heritage surviving! Amongst the many performers there that evening, some in particular stood out. There was Betsat Seyoum, a well known Asmari singer. Her background is based in the world of bar musicians, renowned for their use of double meanings in their choice of words in songs; by a subtle play on words she could make people crack up with laughter, even in the most serious context."

The Brass City
Joe McPhee & Jeb Bishop
"A wonderful meeting between the great multi-horn master from Poughkeepsie NY (Joe McPhee) and up and coming trombone star of the Vandermark 5, Jeb Bishop."
The Cerkno Concert
Joe McPhee & Daunik Lazro
"Joe McPhee plays the pocket trumpet, alto sax, and sings. Daunik Lazro plays the baritone sax except from one piece where he plays the tenor sax. The six improvisations and a McPhee only composition, “Voices for Alto and Tenor” all highlight the rich, resourceful language that these masters share. Both enjoy the intimacy of the duo format, exploring sounds and shifting dynamics. McPhee and Lazro let their breaths converse and sing gently, blossom organically, and fly away, patiently gravitating into an abstract theme, even a subtle melody, or a light swinging rhythmic pattern. The set reaches its emotional climax with “Remembering Ornette Coleman and Albert Ayler (in a caravan of dreams given form)”, this last piece not only pays homage to these great forefathers of free jazz but demonstrates how their ideas are still relevant and invigorating with a brilliant quote of Ayler’s “Ghosts”. Beauty is a rare thing and The Cerkno Concert is the real thing."

The Dream Book
Joe McPhee, Dominic Duval
"A fascinating duo collaboration inspired by the work of Ornette Coleman and by many of those -Dewey Redman, Don Cherry, Scott LaFaro- who have played in the great saxophonist’s groups...The music is stately, sometimes grave; there is no attempt to pastiche Ornette; and there is a rigorous equality between the two voices (Richard Cook & Brian Morton, The Penguin Guide to Jazz Recordings)"
The Fire Each Time
DKV Trio + Joe McPhee
"LIMITED ADVANCE ORDERS BEING TAKEN NOW: Not Two Records presents, "The Fire Each Time," a 6 CD boxset of recordings from the DKV Trio with Joe McPhee as a guest, and dedicated to James Baldwin. The music was recorded during the quartet's tour in Europe which took place in November of 2017, and at shows in Chicago and Milwaukee from December of that year. These performances are historic in many respects: the DKV Trio (with Hamid Drake [drums], Kent Kessler [bass], and Ken Vandermark [reeds]) has only recorded with other musicians on three occasions in its two decade career (with Joe Morris on "Deep Telling" [Okka Disk, 1999; with Mats Gustafsson, Paal Nilssen-Love and Massimo Pupillo on "Schl8hof" [Trost, 2013], and with The Thing ["Collider," Not Two, 2016]); also, this is the first time all four musicians have worked together as a band; and the material documented over the six concerts included in the collection features performances of Joe McPhee's compositions (like "Nation Time") as well as completely improvised music generated by the participants.
