William Parker -- In Order To Survive Quintet
Featuring: William Parker (bass), Hamid Drake (drums), Cooper-Moore (piano), Rob Brown (alto sax), Lewis Barnes (trumpet).

Bassist and renowned New York avant-garde jazz icon, William Parker, pursues music with a visionary approach, and it is such a vision that has informed Parker's massive works as an improviser, composer, poet and overall master musician for over 40 years, thus warranting The Village Voice's accolade - "the most consistently brilliant free jazz bassist of all time".

Born in 1952 in the Bronx, Parker studied bass with Richard Davis and Jimmy Garrison, but by the age of 20, Parker had so quickly become the bass player of choice among his peers that he was soon asked to play with musicians such as Ed Blackwell, Don Cherry, Bill Dixon, Milford Graves, and Sunny Murray. In addition to his notable sojourn with the Cecil Taylor Unit from 1980 through 1991, Parker has cultivated a strong following by his countless collaborations over the years with such performers as Alan Silva, Rashid Ali, Peter Brotzmann, and Matthew Shipp.

Since 2000, Parker has developed his visionary sound and approach with his ongoing quintet, In Order To Survive, uniting some of the most powerful voices in free jazz today: Hamid Drake (percussion), Cooper-Moore (piano), Rob Brown (alto sax), and Lewis Barnes (trumpet).
