Jon Gibson - In Good Company (1992)
"Jon Gibson is probably one of the most important performers in Minimalist music. He primarily plays saxophone and clarinet, plus occasional flute. He played in the premieres Terry Riley's 'In C,' Steve Reich's 'Drumming,' was a founding member of Philip Glass' ensemble, and so premiered a whole lot of his early work, and has worked and recorded with LaMonte Young, Frederic Rzewski, Alvin Curran, and pretty much every major American Minimalistish composer who needed a reed player. As a composer he's somewhat less known, though his work is really up there with all of those guys. ..."
