Tracking The Odds: Jon Gibson (Audio)
Solo works by the saxophone, flute, and wind instrument master, composer, and visual artist (1940-2020), recorded at Roulette on October 13, 1994. A founding member of the Philip Glass Ensemble and a key player on seminal minimalist compositions including pieces by Steve Reich and Terry Riley, his collaborators include La Monte Young, Christian Wolff, David Behrman, Harold Budd, Alvin Curran, Arthur Russell, Annea Lockwood, Frederic Rzewski, and more. Gibson was a technical innovator (circular breathing, for one), an adventurous champion of esoteric instruments, and a uniquely curious and generous creative soul. Photo: Peter Gannushkin.
