William Parker Accentuates the “Free” in Free Jazz 

Source: Bandcamp Daily.

William Parker is one of the greatest artists to have emerged from New York’s free jazz community. The bassist, composer, improviser, and poet came up with Cecil Taylor, Bill Dixon, and David S. Ware, before establishing himself as a leader in the 1990’s. Parker still lays down free jazz sessions with the likes of Daniel Carter and Mat Walerian, but his major projects are beyond categorization: from inspired interpretations of the Curtis Mayfield and Duke Ellington songbooks, to symphonic and dramatic works. With his remarkable new boxset, Migration Of Silence Into and Out of the Tone World, Parker deepens his songcraft and strikes out into bold new territory.
