"William Parker and Hamid Drake are the best rhythm section in jazz right now," says Alternative Press. This assessment is based on their years of collaboration in Roy Campbell's Pyramid Trio, the bands of saxophonists Peter Brotzmann, Fred Anderson and Edward ‘Kidd" Jordan, and various Parker-led ensembles. Although both Parker and Drake have each performed in the Pioneer Valley at least a dozen times over the years, they have never appeared in a duo context. "Not since Don Cherry and Ed Blackwell joined forces have two musicians so organically wedded world-music influences with free jazz," writes Jazziz.
