Joseph Jarman – Song For
Delmark DD 410 (1991)
Joseph Jarman – 1966: Part wizard, part priest, balancing on the cusp of two groups. His first opportunity to record his music presents a dilemma – which he solves by involving all. We should be thankful for the resultant music. Not only did he reveal some of himself, but gave us an introduction to the compositions and playing of Bill Brimfield and Fred Anderson, the percussive delights of Thurman Barker and Steve McCall, the best documentation of Charles Clark and the only offerings of Christopher Gaddy that we can now experience.
