William Parker Quartet, with Hamid Drake

This is a recording of the William Parker Quartet, at the Festival Jazz Onze +, on 27th October, 2006. I particularly like the latter stages of this concert, and feel that they are just beginning to get in their stride - it would have been good to have heard another 30 minutes.

William Parker (b)
Lewis Barnes (tp)
Rob Brown (as)  

Hamid Drake (dm)

Little Bird (William Parker)
Wood Song Flute (William Parker)
Malachi's Mode (William Parker)

Awesome post! In a just world, William Parker would be revered for the genius and social spokesman that he is.
