From Burning Ambulance:
Bassist/composer William Parker has a new three-CD box, For Those Who Are, Still, out next week on AUM Fidelity. (Buy it straight from the label for $30, or $50 for a copy signed by Parker.) It contains three extended pieces for larger-than-usual ensembles, and a shorter piece built around vocalist Leena Conquest. Some of the music dates back 15 years, while the other pieces are more recent.
