Evan Parker is a free jazz saxophone revolutionary who transformed the language and techniques of the instrument in the late 1960s and has since become one of the most admired and influential saxophone improvisers on the planet. Evan has been rewriting the book on saxophone sound and possibilities for almost half a century, and has developed a style distinguished by his creative use of circular breathing and false fingering.
Belfast born bass player, Alan Niblock finds his own way through musical structures and styles while continuing to expand on his musical horizons. He draws his inspiration from freedom of expression and from performing with free improvisers such as legends Lol Coxhill and Paul Dunmall.
Joining Parker and Niblock on drums is Mark Sanders, whose career has taken in many styles and genres, from theatre, contemporary to free improvisation.
If you are a fan of authentic, free improvisation, you’ll be hard pushed to find a better gig than this!
