Mcphee, Joe / Ingebrigt Haker Flaten
Label: Clean Feed
Released in: Portugal
"This is music about, and coming from, Brooklyn, known for its large community of musicians. Particularly, about a period of local history which coincides with the history of jazz, going from the Fourties to the Sixties. Brooklyn jazz was frequently ofuscated by all the activity happening on the other side of the river, but its own dynamics was - and still is - very special. The club Putnam Central, where Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie used to play, is remembered by the free jazz legend Joe McPhee and the much younger Norwegian expatriate Ingebrigt Haker Flaten. "Crossing the Bridge", the first track, is an allusion to "The Bridge", by the great Sonny Rollins. "Here and Now" is McPhee's and Flaten's answer to the question put by Don Cherry on one of his most celebrated recordings, "Where is Brooklyn?". So, what you'll find in "Brooklyn DNA" is, at the same time, a tribute and a connective ritual with a specific tradition. After hearing this, you'll understand better what was, is and will be Brooklyn's jazz continuum"-Clean Feed Records
