Daniel Carter & William Parker

Daniel Carter & William Parker

What might Carter and Parker’s collaboration tell us about our own performances of responsibility and liberty, whether individual, social or musical?

Read

Is the music of exceptional jazz saxophonist Daniel Carter an improvisation of his free associationist, non-impositional anarchism? When William Parker, the great jazz bassist of our time, says: “it is the role of the artist to incite political, social, and spiritual revolution, to awaken us from our sleep and never let us forget our obligations as human beings…” what’s he getting at? And: what might their collaboration tell us about our own performances of responsibility and liberty, whether individual, social or musical?
