Music flows out of bassist, composer and bandleader William Parker like a river. There are few musical formations that the artist has not tried. From solo, to duo, to trio, to small ensembles, to large ensembles, Parker is constantly moving, evolving and changing, following the flow of the music. While Parker, who turns 70 on January 10, 2022, has recorded and performed with some legendary musicians (e.g. Cecil Taylor, Don Cherry, Peter Brötzmann) his own voluminous discography, and his manifold compositions, will be his lasting legacy.
