A world class saxophonist and innovator Evan Parker has been, and continues to be, a highly regarded and pivotal figure in the world of free improvisation. ‘House Full of Floors’ sees him in the company of two equally skilled players, guitarist Russell and bassist Edwards, playing a fast moving, constantly evolving music full of surprises. A trio that has been described as, ‘knotty, subtle and deeply intuitive’, ‘engaging, vital and dynamic’, Evan himself has said that playing in the group is, ‘like three people on a tight rope each holding a safety net for the others’.

"Each man is a master of unconventional instrumental language; collectively, they are fluent beyond eloquence." Bill Meyer, Dusted

"Their approach to music making and improvisation is openly conversant and comfortably natural and their lack of pretension an admirable characteristic." Mark Corroto, All About Jazz
Colston Hall, Colston St, Bristol Bs1 5ar false MM/DD/YYYY
