Bassist/composer William Parker is the subject of Nate Chinen’s column, The Gig, in the April 2009 issue of JazzTimes.

He writes, “There have been dozens of important bassists in free jazz and the related strams of avant-gardism; many are hard at work now. But when it comes to that radiant energy, you’d be hard-pressed to find one more tireless, or more significant, than William Parker.”

Chinen also references Parker’s recent recordings on AUM Fidelity, including Farmers By Nature, Double Sunrise Over Neptune and Petit Oiseau, which he calls “the William Parker record I’d recommend to neophytes and skeptics.”
