Joe McPhee & Fred Lonberg-Holm: Their First Duet, University of Chicago
Twenty-three years apart in age, McPhee and Lonberg-Holm were a perfect pairing of traditional and contemporary, with each musician reaching into the other's territory to blend the two worlds. The two worlds merged as one in bold risk-taking to fracture the idea of incongruity. The resulting single and unified, timeless world beckoned spirit as it overthrew predictable musical concepts. The duo's premiere performance was as stunning and intricate as the Gothic architecture that surrounded the two of them.
