Joe McPhee 80th Birthday Celebration, November 17

Source: Quinn’s.

In Quinn’s six years of operation, no single artist has been more consequential or has provided more unforgettable performances than the Colossus of Poughkeepsie himself, the mighty Joe McPhee. The author of the foreword to Mike Faloon’s bestseller The Other Night at Quinn’s and the youngest man in any room, we’re honored to host an evening celebrating the great man, his music, poetry and sterling example of a life well-lived a few days after his 80th (!!!) birthday. Joe will be joined by many of his musical associates over the years, including Joe Giardullo on soprano sax, Jamie Saft on keyboards, Michael Bisio on bass, James Keepnews on guitar, both Jay Rosen and Dave Berger on drums and other artists TBA. Please join us in honoring this titan of creativity with a night of unbridled invention.
