about

This recording by William Parker is a solo recording from June 2014 at les ateliers claus.
Willam Parker has been a fiery and creative fountain of consistent improvisational brilliance. William Parker never disappoints and his solo performances are a luxury to all those fortunate enough to appreciate the gift of sound.

William Parker was born Bronx, New York City. He was not formally trained as a classical player, though he did study with Jimmy Garrison, Richard Davis, and Wilbur Ware and learned the tradition. Parker is one of few jazz bassists who regularly plays arco. He also plays several other instruments from around the world, including the West African kora.

While Parker has been active since the early 1970s; he has had a higher public profile since the early 1990s. William Parker first came to public attention with pianist Cecil Taylor. He has long been a member of saxophonist David S. Ware's quartet and in Peter Brötzmann' s groups.
He is a member of the cooperative Other Dimensions In Music. Together with his wife organizes the annual Vision Festival in New York City.

Recorded by Etienne Foyer, 18th June 2014.
