The Village Voice called William Parker “the most consistently brilliant free jazz bassist of all time.” It’s easy to concur with such a statement. Parker has been at the forefront of creative music, leading his own bands, working with the likes of Cecil Taylor and Don Cherry, publishing six books and teaching and mentoring, as well as recording at least 150 albums. A recent release, “Live/Shapeshifter”, is the feature of this episode of OMJ. Parker leads his quartet, In Order To Survive, through an amazing set of tunes. In Order To Survive came to prominence about twenty years ago, then kind of disappeared until a reunion at the 2012 Vision Festival and then a recording in 2016. To celebrate post-session, Parker booked Shapeshifter Lab and the performance was recorded live.

Also new this week, more great music from Portugal from trumpeter Gonçalo Marques with Jacob Sacks and Cat In A Bag, Guillermo Klein & Los Gauchos, saxophonist Tim Ries’ long-delayed “Life Changes”, and Polish bassist Kamila Drabek and her trio, Tercet Kamili Drabek.
