Evan Parker / Barry Guy / Paul Lytton: Music For David Mossman

Read "Music For David Mossman" reviewed by John Sharpe

Over 35 years and counting. It's fair to say that the British trio of saxophonist Evan Parker, bassist Barry Guy and drummer Paul Lytton constitutes one of the longer-lived units in the free improvised realm, a domain often distinguished by its tendency towards ad hoc groupings. So, with a discography over two score in size, you ...

Evan Parker / Barry Guy / Paul Lytton: Zafiro

Read "Zafiro" reviewed by Mark Corroto

The best comparison to the trio of Evan Parker, Barry Guy and Paul Lytton in modern performing jazz might be Keith Jarrett's trio with Jack DeJohnette and Gary Peacock. Like Jarrett's trio performances of jazz standards, the Parker/Guy/Lytton meetings are modern benchmarks for trio interplay, empathy and creative music. But where Jarrett begins his exploration at ...

Evan Parker / Barry Guy / Paul Lytton: At the Vortex

Read "At the Vortex" reviewed by Robert Spencer

Evan Parker's last disc for FMP called him “a star of free jazz," and that he certainly is. What's more, Parker / Guy / Lytton are a free jazz supergroup. They rank with Anthony Braxton's quartet with Marilyn Crispell, Mark Dresser, and Gerry Hemingway, as one of the most renowned, oft-recorded, and long-lived ensembles in the ...
