A burning spiritual session inspired by John Coltrane's "Live at the Village Vanguard Again" that began when Jamie Saft told Joe Morris about his deep admiration for Alice Coltrane's playing, adding McPhee and Downs as the perfect complement to realize this excellent album.

McPhee / Saft / Morris / Downs: Ticonderoga (Clean Feed)

Label: Clean Feed    
Released in: Portugal    


"This quartet was born from a conversation between Joe Morris and Jamie Saft about their mutual fascination with John Coltrane's "Live at the Village Vanguard Again" album. From there they decided to develop a project under the influence of the music played by Coltrane with his wife Alice Coltrane, Jimmy Garrison, Rashied Ali and a pair of guests, Pharoah Sanders and Emanuel Rahim. Right away they established that Morris would use a double bass, instead of his usual guitar, and that Saft would focus completely on acoustic piano, putting aside any electric and electronic keyboards. And they immediately named the two other contributors to the enterprise: reedist Joe McPhee - who in fact attended the recording of Coltrane's "Vanguard Again" album, sitting in the front row - and drummer Charles Downs. These choices were obvious: McPhee and Downs are true living legends of free jazz. Morris had a well established musical relationship with McPhee and all loved Downs' contributions, when he was known as Rashid Bakr, to the music of Cecil Taylor, Jemeel Moondoc, William Parker and Roy Campbell. Then they figured out the name of the quartet: Ticonderoga. The Mohawk word means "junction of two waterways". Which waterways? Easy to guess: the original "new thing" fronted by Coltrane with Albert Ayler and Ornette Coleman and what is now understood as structured improvised music. The final product hits you like a punch. A good, reviving, punch..."-Clean Feed Records
