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.
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
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,
