On Friday, September 19th, Firehouse 12 is pleased to present legendary British saxophonist Evan Parker performing with guitarist Joe Morris and trumpeter Nate Wooley. Parker will in the country for a weeklong residency at New York City's The Stone the week prior and will be extending his stay in the US with performances throughout the Northeast including this performance at Firehouse 12.

Parker has been called "a virtuoso of extended techniques - circular breathing, multiphonics, sculptured overtones - and lionized for his solo excursions" (Nate Chinen, The New York Times) and "a national treasure. Innovator and technical wizard, champion of the improviser's art" (London Jazz News). Noted writer Stuart Broomer wrote "In Evan Parker's music, thought and breath are continuous, each the instrument and measure of the other."

Evan Parker was born in Bristol, UK in 1944. He began playing the saxophone at age 14 because of his love of Paul Desmond's saxophone playing. He has been active internationally as a performer, composer, and recording artist since 1967. He has collaborated with such noted musicians as Anthony Braxton, Derek Bailey, Peter Brotzmann, Paul Lytton, Cecil Taylor, Rashied Ali, Steve Lacy among many others.
