About

Evan Parker and Roscoe Mitchell co-founded the Transatlantic Art Ensemble in 2004. The ensemble’s account of Mitchell’s “Composition/Improvisation Nos. 1, 2 & 3” was issued by ECM to critical acclaim (including an album-of-the-year award from France’s Jazzman). “Boustrophedon”, featuring Evan Parker’s music, is the companion volume. Like nothing else in Parker’s discography it features him as composer-conductor, guiding the transatlantic instrumental forces into chamber orchestral territory “somewhere between Gil Evans and Luigi Nono”. There is also, amongst many highlights, some transcendent saxophone playing – from both Parker and Mitchell. Recorded live in Munich.
