PETER BRÖTZMANN is one of the most revered jazz musicians alive today. A saxophonist as well as clarinetist, Brötzmann has released over fifty albums as a bandleader, and has appeared on a total of over one hundred albums. His 1968 recording, Machine Gun, is considered one of the classics within the realms of free jazz and European free improvisation. Brötzmann has also recorded and performed with a roster of musicians as diverse as Han Bennink, Fred Van Hove, Derek Bailey, Frank Wright, Cecil Taylor, Keiji Haino, Mats Gustafsson, Ken Vandermark, Conny Bauer, Joe McPhee, and his son, Caspar Brötzmann, a notable guitarist in his own right.

HAMID DRAKE is widely regarded as one of the best percussionists in jazz and improvised music. Incorporating Afro-Cuban, Indian, and African percussion instruments and influence, in addition to using the standard trap set, Drake has collaborated extensively with top free-jazz improvisers around the world, including trumpeter Don Cherry; pianist Herbie Hancock; saxophonists Pharoah Sanders, Fred Anderson, Archie Shepp and David Murray; and bassists Reggie Workman and William Parker.

WILLIAM PARKER began his career in the 1970s playing with Cecil Taylor, and released his first album as a leader, Through Acceptance of the Mystery Peace, in 1981. He has played with David S. Ware, Jimmy Lyons, Derek Bailey, John Zorn, Charles Gayle, Wayne Horvitz, Roscoe Mitchell, Matthew Shipp, and in the group Other Dimensions in Music. The main force behind New York’s Vision Festival, Parker is also an avid poet and author.
