Sax Soup Poetry & Voice - Joe's Solo

"Joe's Solo," by Sax, Soup, Poetry and Voice with Nicole Peyrafitte (vocals, cooking), Pierre Joris (poetry), and Joe Giardullo (saxophone), recorded live on November 10, 2007 at The Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy, NY.

A "melange" performance in three parts: to see, hear, smell, wonder and taste! The trio celebrates and harvests non-linear momentum through music, poetry, voice, multi-media performance and yes, an Inner-State soup, drawing on an eclectic heritage to perform works based on transcontinental experiences, a tasty and imaginative broth. Videos, paintings, texts, music, and movements blend into a "Bi-Continental Chowder!"

This production is part of "Free Jazz at the Sanctuary," a 13-part series of jazz performance videos featuring some of the world's most talented improvisers performing a wide spectrum of music in the genre broadly known as free jazz.

Each hour-long show is available on DVD directly from Downtown Music Gallery
