Evan Parker's Psi Label Celebrates First Ten Years

From All About Jazz:

November 2011 marks the tenth anniversary of saxophonist Evan Parker‘s Psi label. Its first release, the fine Parker solo album Lines Burnt in Light, was recorded on October 11 2001 and released within a month of recording. In the following decade, the label released a total of 83 CD’s of which 14 were re-releases including 13 that first came out on Parker’s former label, Incus. In the past five years, the number of re-releases has steadily dwindled, although some significant Incus recordings still remain to be re-released.

Of the label’s output, roughly half features the playing of Parker himself, in a variety of settings from solo to large ensembles such as London Improvisers Orchestra (LIO) and Hans Koller’s big band. Over the decade, releases on Psi have gradually become more adventurous and exploratory with an increasing number including electronics and manipulation.

2nd Sunday Jazz is a monthly series that features a “house band” comprising some of Baltimore’s finest Jazz artists. Each month we invite a national guest to join us for a one off performance. This month we feature the superb trumpeter Lewis “Flip” Barnes.

Influenced by Miles Davis, Kenny Dorham, Booker Little and Thad Jones; trumpeter, Lewis ‘Flip’ Barnes is Virginia born, NYC reared and Howard University educated.
Barnes has lent his trumpet, vocal and electric bass stylings to bassist William Parker’s critically acclaimed quartet, (which includes Rob Brown on saxophone and Hamid Drake on drums) The Raining On The Piano Group, (which adds pianist Eri Yamamoto and vocalist Leena Conquest to the quartet) The Little Huey Orchestra, and The Inside The Songs of Curtis Mayfield project, (with Amiri Baraka, Leena Conquest, Darryl Foster, Sabir Mateen, and Dave Burrell)
He has also worked and/or recorded with Jemeel Moondoc, Jean-Paul Bourelly, The Holmes Brothers, Norah Jones, William Hooker, Chris Becker, Noizland, and numerous other projects.

Advance Tickets $20 available now at

Join Creative Differences for a night of musical mayhem at The Windup Space as unrivaled guitarist Marc Ribot brings his Ceramic Dog trio for an incredibly rare Baltimore concert.
Ceramic Dog is a post-everything band combining the energies of three masters of downtown New York City mayhem: guitarist-vocalist Marc Ribot (who has collaborated with Tom Waits,John Zorn, Robert Plant, T-Bone Burnett, Marianne Faithful, the Lounge Lizards, and Elvis Costello), bassist Shahzad Ismaily (an accomplice of Laurie Anderson, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Jolie Holland, and the Secret Chiefs 3), and former West Coast experimental drummer Ches Smith (seen often with Xiu Xiu, Secret Chiefs 3, and Trevor Dunn’s Trio Convulsant). Ribot’s a widely recognized original on the guitar, with influence across multiple genres of music, including rock, jazz, punk, Latin, soul, 80s No-Wave, avant-garde and noise, and Ceramic Dog unites all of this, along with Ismaily and Smith’s unique and diverse abilities for sonic experimentation. The trio grew out of a post 9-11 bucket list, when Ribot decided to find out what would happen if he did away with the hyphens haunting his earlier projects: the punk-Latin “Cubanos Postizos,” the punk-experimental “Shrek,” and the punk-Albert Ayler “Spiritual Unity.” It took several years of searching before he found, in Ches Smith and Shahzad Ismaily, the rhythm section with the energy for The Thing itself. “This is the first time since high school I’ve been in a real rock band,” Ribot says. “We actually get together to rehearse just for the fun of it, even when we don’t have gigs!”
