Giuseppi Logan, the nearly forgotten and highly elusive Free-Jazz master who was recently “rediscovered” in New York’s Central Park by a Christian mission group (!?), playing his saxophone for change, is having a birthday party at New York’s Issue Project Room. The incredibly skilled multi-instrumentalist played with such luminaries as Earl Bostic, Archie Shepp, Pharoah Sanders, Patty Waters, Roswell Rudd, Bill Dixon, Don Pullen, Dave Burrell, Eddie Gomez and Milford Graves. Even though Logan played on many of these jazz legends’ LPs, he only had two albums himself until last year. his releases include, The Giuseppi Logan Quartet (1964) and More (1965) and 2009’s The Giuseppi Logan Quintet (2009).
