William Parker is, no doubt, the most remarkable bassist in the post-Mingus era. A great musician who is gifted with an uncanny ability to make any artist near him—musician, dancer, painter or poet—perform better. Parker presents a musical vision that is full with compassion and commitment to his community at large.

William Parker began his European tour in the Tel Aviv Jazz Festival, performing with Roy Campbell Jr.'s Pyramid Trio. Parker and drummer Hamid Drake recorded a trio album in Tel Aviv with Israeli saxophonist Albert Beger, and Parker performed with his daughter, dancer Miriam, who resides in Tel Aviv. On his tour he will play in a trio with Matthew Shipp and drummer Gerald Cleaver, with his Violin Trio alongside Billy Bang and Sunny Murray, and in a duo with bassist Joëlle Léandre. The interview was conducted in Tel Aviv.
