For the first Complete Communion of the summer, we bring you American free jazz heavyweights, an Italian bass virtuoso, some Anglo-Swiss oddballs, several generations of British eccentrics, and Franco-Portuguese chamber groups. The new double album from William Parker’s Quartets is the big news, but I’m also bowled over by the second studio album from Hear In Now, the US-Italian string trio of Mazz Swift, Tomeka Reid, and Silvia Bolognesi. Also in the mix are Chamber 4, The Selva, Gregor Vidic & Nicolas Field, Sam Andreae/David Birchall/Otto Willberg, and Lol Coxhill & Raymond MacDonald. Onwards faithful jazzers!
