Rocket Science : Evan Parker / Peter Evans / Craig Taborn / Sam Pluta (More Is More)
Label: More Is More    
Released in: USA    

"A collaborative improvising quartet, assembled by trumpet Peter Evans, and featuring three of his favorite instrumental innovators: saxophonist Evan Parker, pianist Craig Taborn and computer musician Sam Pluta. Each player has broadened the previously known boundaries of his chosen instrument and married this craft to a refined musical sensitivity.

The players have a wide variety of history between them; Taborn and Evans have collaborated and recorded with Parker for several of his ECM recordings ("Boustrophedon" and "The Moment's Energy"), Pluta and Evans have worked together in a variety of contexts since 2008, both duo (Pluta's "Sum and Difference") and in the Peter Evans Quintet.

The May 2012 concerts in Europe were the very first this quartet played together, culminating in a performance at the historic Moers Festival (Parker played in the festivals opening years in the early 70's)"-Saudades
