William Parker is a bassist, improviser, composer, writer, and educator from New York City, heralded by The Village Voice as, “the most consistently brilliant free jazz bassist of all time.” Drummer and percussionist Hamid Drake is widely regarded as one of the best percussionists in jazz and improvised music. Drake is noted for incorporating Afro-Cuban, Indian, and African percussion instruments and influence into his music. Dancer and poet Patricia Nicholson is steeped in the aesthetic of free jazz, with an attention to spiritual and social responsibility. Beginning with the belief that dance is the visual manifestation of sound and energy, Nicholson has developed a singular practice, one drawing from both traditional and unconventional techniques to create an eclectic yet intuitive approach to movement and composition. Together these three visionary artists weave a tapestry of sound and movement.
