Joe McPhee: Trinity
The divergent styles on Trinity merge into a coherent whole through the sense that this group is simply allowing improvisation to guide their voyage. Very little of the music on this disc sounds "planned"and as a result, it's the conversational open-endedness of Trinity that shines. Though I wouldn't recommend this disc to listeners without an ear for the unpredictable, it's an admirable document of rare creativity. Those few owners of the highly-compressed 1972 original LP will take heart in the expanded sonics of this reissue.
