Milford Graves: A Mind-Body Deal

Introduction by Mark Christman. Text by Jake Nussbaum, Melvin Gibbs, John Corbett, Carlo Ventura, Milford Graves, Blake Bradford.

Milford Graves: A Mind-Body Deal

The first-ever overview on the multimedia art of free-jazz pioneer and creative polymath Milford Graves

Milford Graves (born 1941) has been a revelatory force in music since the mid-1960s, liberating the drummer from the role of “timekeeper” to instrumental improviser and giving rise to the free-jazz movement, with groundbreaking performances alongside Lou Reed, Min Tanaka and John Zorn.

But music cannot contain the energies of his creativity and intellect. Graves’ kaleidoscopic genius led him to develop an unprecedented body of interests—from medicine to botany, stem-cell regeneration to martial arts.

A Mind-Body Deal gathers the multifaceted work of Milford Graves, exploring the practices and predilections of this extraordinary mind. Fully illustrated, this catalog includes documentation from the eponymous show at ICA Philadelphia, exhibiting a collection of Graves’ hand-painted album covers and posters, idiosyncratic drum sets, recording ephemera, multimedia sculptures, photographs and costumes, with elements from his scientific studies.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

New York Times

Corey Kilgannon

Milford Graves devoted himself to studying the rhythms of the heart. It turns out he was creating a technique to treat himself.

Vinyl Factory

Lazlo Rugoff

Aiming to connect these diverse yet interrelated strands, A Mind-Body Deal...is an attempt to open the doors of his habitat to the spark of curiosity in our own minds, so we too may learn to weave our mind-bodies with the rhythms of the world around us.

Jazz Times

Ken Micallef

A Mind-Body Deal spans six decades and comprises more than 40 artworks, artifacts from the drummer's home, scientific studies, recording ephemera, and archival recordings...

BOMB

Aakash Mittal

A strikingly beautiful experience of the life, mind, and work of one of the foremost creatives of our time.
