Evan Parker & September Winds



A remarkable recording launching collaboration between Evan Parker and September Winds, a group of four Swiss musicians playing wind instruments: Peter A. Schmid – bass & contrabass clarinet, contrabass saxophone (tubax), taragot; Hans Anliker – trombone; Jürg Solothurnmann – alto & soprano saxophones; Reto Senn – clarinet & bass clarinet, taragot. Evan Parker plays soprano and tenor saxophones, as well as a new instrument tubax developed by instrument builder Benedikt Eppelsheim. The recording is an incredible sonic adventure permeated with a “profound sense of balance, the ferment and poise that both generate and sustain the music” – Stuart Broomer).
