Peter Brötzmann, Hamid Drake, William Parker began performing together in 1995. In 2003 The All Music Guide called the band “one of the leading ventures in the history of avant-garde jazz.” After a ten year hiatus the band is back on the road; May 10 at the Chapel is its first ever Bay Area concert.
Since changing music history with his 1968 album Machine Gun Peter Brötzmann has never slowed down. His collaborators read like an international who’s-who of the most influential jazz and experimental musicians of the last half century.
In 1995 the Village Voice called William Parker “the most consistently brilliant free jazz bassist of all time.” As band leader, composer, author and instrumentalist Parker is among the most influential artists in Jazz.
One of the world’s most widely respected drummers, Hamid Drake was born in Louisiana in 1955 and grew up in Chicago playing jazz, reggae and world musics.
