Evan Parker Biography (Wikipedia)

Evan Shaw Parker (born 5 April 1944) is a British saxophone player who plays free jazz.

Recording and performing prolifically with many collaborators, Parker was a pivotal figure in the development of European free jazz and free improvisation. He has pioneered or substantially expanded an array of extended techniques. Critic Ron Wynn describes Parker as "among Europe's most innovative and intriguing saxophonists...his solo sax work isn't for the squeamish."
