"When Universal Indians invited Joe McPhee to be part of upcoming tours and recording they wanted the original spirit of american free jazz. Joe brought his knowledge and great spirit uplifting the music in his melodic and profound way. Results are beautiful as Dikeman's fury is complemented by McPhee's poetry and lyrical approach and rythm section is a powerhouse sometimes to turn into delicacy when the music asks for it.
In "Skullduggery" they have the partnership of another one of the "new thing" mavericks, Joe McPhee. Now, you may ask: is this a nostalgic celebration of the past, with the same kind of revisionist perspectives we find in present recuperations of the bebop formats? No. That wouldn't be possible with the involvement of someone like McPhee, even if the American relocated in Amsterdam and the two Norwegian improvisers wanted it, and they don't. Their guest is widely known for his achievements in renewing the free subgenre, and in his path he made important contributions to other music practices, namely Pauline Olivero's deep listening electro-acoustic concepts, Nihilist Spasm Band's radical brand of noise and the jam rock of The Thing with Cato Salsa Experience.
This CD reflects that openness and what you have here is the free jazz after free jazz. Intrigued enough?"-Clean Feed
