Chris Corsano, Joe McPhee

by Metroland Staff on May 22, 2013



When two great free-jazz improvisers are onstage together, it can be like watching Univision and suddenly understanding every word. The language that emmerges in that space is fluid, universal and raw. Drummer Chris Corsano is no stranger to Capital Region stages, even while he’s become an international touring force with Rangda, Bjork and others. But he’s still a spring chicken to Joe McPhee, the 73-year-old saxophonist who’s played with everyone from Pauline Oliveros to Peter Brotzmann. The two will converse Wednesday night in Saratoga. (May 29, 8 PM, $6-$10, 110 Spring St., Saratoga Springs, 587-6433)
