Joe McPhee (born November 3, 1939) is an American jazz multi-instrumentalist born in Miami, Florida, a player of tenor, alto, and soprano saxophone, the trumpet, flugelhorn and valve trombone. [source]
“In 1968, the same year that Anthony Braxton made his first solo LP “For Alto”, Joe McPhee began a series of home recordings, assisted by his friend and future producer Craig Johnson.
McPhee had initially worked as a trumpeter, and he’d only picked up tenor saxophone earlier in the year. Along with his very first documentation on tenor, these tracks included solo recorder and a starling “sound on sound” recording, an early commercial overdubbing technique. In years to follow, McPhee would sometimes use the multitrack recorder in performance, referring to it as his Survival Unit. McPhee continued these highly experimental recordings in 1970 and 1973, using instruments not usually associated with him, including deftly manipulated microphone feedback, nagoya, harp, and Space Organ (a Wurlitzer), which he combined with tenor saxophone and the tour-de-force “Cosmic Love”.”

From the album A Sanctuary Within.
A SANCTUARY WITHIN, like much of Murray’s work from this period, defies categorization. It combines traditional and modern elements of jazz and adds a healthy dose of African rhythms to the mix. Murray himself would argue that categorizing jazz only serves to damage the art form. One is tempted to agree with him when he suggests simply calling it music, and leaving it at that. [source]
