Hi Fans and Supporters,


If you are a jazz fan read on....

Just wanted to alert you to the fact that the funding project for the follow up record to the Giuseppi Logan Project closes in just 19 days! See http://kck.st/T0su73

This funding effort only needs about 60 more vinyl pledges to succeed. This record was recorded in June of this year as a follow up and partially funded by The Giuseppi Logan project on Kickstarter.  

 

Giuseppi Logan was a contemporary of Albert Ayler, John Coltrane and Pharaoh Sanders. An accomplished sax player, as well as clarinet, flute and piano player, Giuseppi became known for his free form compositional genius. Having studied at the New England Conservatory, in the sixties Logan was hailed as one of the bright lights of free jazz. In the seventies, Giuseppi disappeared from view and remained lost to the music world for well over 30 years.  His story is told in the New York Times article Giuseppi Logan's Second Chance http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/08/nyregion/giuseppi-logan-jazz-artist-tries-for-a-comeback.html?pagewanted=all

 

This record is stronger and Giuseppi is in better health and playing his heart out. Also featuring the talented multi-instrumentalist Jessica Lurie. CD and download are available as well as vinyl. 

 

Best wishes for a happy and prosperous 2013,
Ed Pettersen
