The Bishop's Move

Parker, Evan Trio & Brotzmann, Peter Trio: The Bishop's Move (Victo)
Label: Victo    
Released in: Canada    

A supergroup / supermeeting of historical status! ...Evan Parker’s trio with Paul Lytton and Alex Schlippenbach (swapped in for bassist Barry Guy), and Peter Brötzmann’s trio with Hamid Drake and William Parker, were on North American tours at the same exact time in Spring, 2003. Why not arrange a meeting for them at FIMAV? This, then, was the first time that this grouping performed together, the debut of the Evan Parker/Peter Brötzmann supertrio. The historic results are here for you to hear, testament as much to the integrity of the two working trios as to the combinatorial force of the sextet. Naturally, this says almost nothing of the music itself. It is, in its own way, both the product of this criss-crossing history, and also a single night’s ephemeral moment. Improvisation is both of those at once. It condenses complex histories into a simple dictum: make it mean something here and now. There and then, at FIMAV 2003, that’s exactly what they did. The two identities here are the two trios. What we hear is what happens when they square off and play with (and for) one another. And for us. Continuing the crissing and crossing of this geneological line."- John Corbett, Chicago, August 2004
