Parker, William – “Through Acceptance of the Mys. ” – [Eremite]

An augmented re-release of works originally put
out by Parker himself on his Centering Records…
back in 1981!! Check the concise liner notes for
dates of original recordings…AND for Parker’s
account of his epiphany. He’s a thinking man’s
composer. He may not have been in his tone world
at this point, but he was well on his way. On
“Commitment” his bass rumbles like a get-away car
in the alley. The title track reminds me of Teiji
Ito’s soundtrack work, the flute there a beautiful
beacon. The last track, Parker recites poetry over
duelling violin (one of them bein Billy Bang!)
in an ode to his father. Coltrane tribute on
track #3, the initial track is the free-est piece,
(a smaller Little Huey, if you will) but there is a
fine still point in the midst of all that soloing
and glorious chaos. Go find it.
