NINNI MORGIA / WILLIAM PARKER

Prism

(Ultramarine - UM017) 2xLP $24.00 (Out-of-stock)

Upright bassist Parker is one of the last men standing who, according to Derek Bailey, still plays "pure free jazz," while Morgia (Control Unit, The Right Moves, Quivers) here reaches the top-level of avant guitar, his sounds ranging from Stockhausen’s tape experiments to the saxophones of Braxton and Evan Parker. Morgia's alien sound finds an excellent match in Parker's slide whistle and a strange Spanish reed instrument called gralle. During the making of this recording, Parker asserted: “This is the music I have always had in my mind, the music I have been dreaming about. Music that inspires me with visions of colors, like the light reflecting through a prism."
