1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Yves Troendle on 12 Jun. 2014
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I Think of Evan Parker and Joe McPhee as coming from opposite realms of jazz -- Parker: pure tense energy exploring extremes of his instrument, squawk as they will, and McPhee: warm, large-lunged, soulful, unreeling his narrative in long, muscular, smooth Waves -- so naturally I was curious about what alchemy they might visit on each other, what space they might create and explore between their realms.
Unfortunately what actually happened (to my set of ears, anyway) is that each inhibited the other: if you hadn't read the sleeve you might not guess who's playing, and if you didn't know better from other recordings (or Concerts, if you're that lucky) you'd never guess what a great player each man is. Since the 60s "free" jazz has developed a basic set of responses each player can have to the other(s)-- imitation, Quick bleeps to the other's long tones, etc., and here McPhee and Parker don't seem to be able to get past those to anything more intense and surprising.
My rfecommendation: buy lots of both players, but not when they're together.
