Evan Parker: Riverside Studios, London

Richard Cook, New Musical Express, 18 August 1984

I'VE WITNESSED dozens of Parker's improvisations and learned something on each occasion from this complex work. The singular applies, for every time he plays alone and puts the soprano saxophone to his lips it seems a continuation, a new instalment from a lifetime s study and exploration.

Total word count of piece: 197
