William Parker has lived a rich musical life surrounded by a fascinating group of peers and artists who have invaluable stories, narratives, and lessons to share with us. These artists feel free to open up around Mr. Parker for they know he understands the framework that their creativity flows out of, and the twists and turns of life in the art form. Essential oral history here. Matthew Shipp
