Taking the hard road and pushing jazz forward

Django Bates“Listening to an Eddie Parker solo, one is reminded of the person in “The hound of the Baskervilles”  who knew hundreds of secret paths across the moors, even in darkness… apart from the fact that she was a girl and had never heard any music, the similarities are enormous…
“If, as it often seems, jazz musicians are to be judged on their ability to imitate dead American saxophonists, Eddie Parker is in for a tough time because he plays the flute with his own clear inimitable voice. Eddie knows every nook and cranny of modern music and uses this knowledge to surprise, excite and delight us. Few musicians are taking the hard road and pushing jazz forward; Eddie is one of the few.”
