Painter’s Spring

William Parker

Bassist William Parker together with Daniel Carter on alto and tenor sax, flute, and clarinet and Hamid Drake on drums, lifts the program to the listener's attention with the melding of these monster talents into one powerful musical force. As a master of the acoustic bass, Parker's techniques on Painter's Spring range from playing the bass in a percussive-like mode to using a mixture to staffed notation to achieve an orchestral fidelity.
