House Full of Floors

Evan Parker (saxophones), John Edwards (bass) and John Russell (guitar)

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. ʻHouse Full of Floorsʼ 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, ʻknotty, subtle and deeply intuitiveʼ, ʻengaging, vital and dynamicʼ, Evan himself has said that playing in the group is, ʻlike three people on a tight rope each holding a safety net for the othersʼ.

"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
