Joe McPhee, Chris Corsano; Scraps and ShadowsRoaratorio
ROAR 026 LP
Long Playing Record
Scraps and Shadows is the second album by the dream pairing of Joe McPhee and Chris Corsano. A follow-up to Under a Double Moon, which featured McPhee's alto saxophone, Scraps and Shadows finds him largely on tenor.
Recorded live in Milwaukee in 2011, the album consists of seven dedicatory pieces, from the delicate balladry of 'For Adrienne P' to the appropriately combustible 'For Han Bennink.' Corsano's stupendously detailed drumming and McPhee's free-soul love cries weave a master latticework together. Cover art by Judith Lindbloom.
