McPhee - Edwards Duo

McPhee - Edwards Duo

John Edwards, bass
Joe McPhee, saxophone, trumpet

One of the great moments in the long history of the artacts festival in St. Johannin Tirol took place in 2019: in this duo lineup (at that time even a world premiere), Joe McPhee & John Edwards touched the listening crowd during their performance both with spirituality as well as enormous playfulness.

We are happy to be able to experience this event here in Munich in an Offene Ohren e.V.concert.

The legendary African-American trumpeter and saxophonist Joe McPhee has already celebrated his 82nd birthday. He is still teaching the spirit - now even to two generations of younger musicians - at least when it comes to spirituality and emotionality of musical expression.

Since the late 60s he has had a decisive and lasting influence on the creative and free jazz scene. His emotionally deeply touching playing, his complex compositions and musical concepts secure him a sunny spot in the history of jazz music. At our anniversary concert (in duo with Paal Nilssen-Love in May 2019), you could also experience this.

Now he's coming back to the MUG, this time with one of the currently most sought-after bassists in the free playing style, and already something of a regular of the Offene Ohren e.V., John Edwards. The Brit seems to have been redefining the word Brexit for years, and his countless trips to festivals and clubs across Europe and the rest of the world honor him as one of the greats of the genre. In addition to Joe McPhee, his play partners include other big names such as John Butcher, Phil Minton, Roger Turner, Sunny Murray and Louis Moholo Moholo.
