William Parker Makes My Day
I just downloaded Evolving Silence Vol. 1, by Hamid Drake, Albert Beger, and William Parker. Drake plays drums, Beger plays sax and flute. Parker, of course, is the genius on bass. The cut I am playing, 'The Naked Truth' will root out all the plaque from your gums if you let it.
Parker might be the greatest jazz composer of our age, whatever our age is. I also loaded a piece from his monumental album The Mayor of Punkville, with William Parker and The Little Huey Creative Music Orchestra. 'Oglala Eclipse' is quite an adventure. Enjoy.
