Jeff Parker Trio – Bright Light In Winter
Delmark DE 2015 (2012)
Bright Light In Winter is the long-awaited third album by Chicago guitarist Jeff Parker. With his associates Chris Lopes (bass) and Chad Taylor (drums), this trio continues their examination of our post-modern musical universe via tuneful compositions by all three members, and an elastic, dynamic approach to improvisation and group interplay – rooted in our familiar musical traditions, but also searching for the new ones. Recorded and mixed by Bundy K. Brown. Also available: Jeff Parker – Like-Coping (Delmark 543) with Chris Lopes and Chad Taylor. “Jeff Parker is arguably the most exciting and thoughtful jazz guitarist of the past two decades, a masterful free improviser who’s also fluent in everything from postbop to postrock.” -Chicago Reader.
