EVAN PARKER AND TRANCE MAP PLUS
Cheltenham 2018 [TomP remaster, 1CD]

Cheltenham Jazz Festival. Parabola Arts Centre, Cheltenham, UK; May 5, 2018; broadcast June 25, 2018. Very good BBC Radio 3 live stream TS-File.

Mike Hobart, ft.com:

Evan Parker’s multi-faceted fluency, circular breathing and control of pitch and tone are rooted in years of study, yet his head isn’t stuck in the clouds. Laughing, he describes how his oboist grandson sends up Parker’s phonics, microtones and multiple lines. “Some people don’t hear them at all - they just hear a racket,” he says. “My grandson’s impression of my solo playing is to basically blow and wiggle his fingers. Of course, that’s what I’m doing - but it’s all about how you blow and how you wiggle.”

This coming Saturday he will perform at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival with Trance Map, a five-piece ensemble that sets Parker alongside electronics duo Springheel Jack, bassist Adam Linson and Matt Wright on laptop and turntables. “It all looks desperately up to date on paper,” Parker says. “Maybe it is.” It’s a project that is helped by a comfortable onstage understanding, he adds: “Two or three words from me, and that’s it.”

The Cheltenham gig will explore the aesthetics of the late British drummer and composer Basil Kirchin, whose experiments with found sound helped lay the foundations of ambient music. Kirchin made natural sounds sound like instruments and instruments sound like natural sounds, says Parker. With some pleasure he tells a story of fellow saxophonist Alan Barnes meeting Kirchin some years ago: the composer played Barnes two recordings - one of a whooper swan, and the other of Parker playing sax. Kirchin challenged Barnes: “I defy you to tell me which is which.” That is Parker’s kind of compliment.

In Parker’s view, free jazz is “a natural place for instrumentalists to go”. “They don’t want to be told what to do other than some polite niceties like ‘don’t play too loud’, ‘don’t play too many notes’.”

  7. Jesus and the crucifixion was but one myth in a book of myths, but if you want to believe it at least be smart enough to know there is no salvation without the Resurrection. Whether it was the Romans or the Jews, they would have been tools in the Hands of God. Historically, there had been so many false prophets and fake messiahs you couldnt blame them. I bet if Jesus came back today many of the adherents to Prosperity Gospel would kill him quite quickly.

  8. Mark the Hebrew has many usernames. His latest is corey m , to go along with billy , Harmon etc .

    By HHH on Jul 20, 2020

  9. David , Derrick , Antichrist, W Kamau Bell is the latest trouble making black ape trying to stir up propaganda. He is on all the cable news channels promoting black lives matter , denigrating all whites as supremacists . The black apes and Jews have taken over the country. According to this loudmouth bozo , black apes never had it worse . Actually black apes have never had it better , In the fifties and sixties for example, black apes had fewer rights and were more repressed, yet acted much better and behaved withe more dignity.

    By HHH on Jul 20, 2020

  10. There were no multiple baby mamas back then , families stayed together , one father per household and education was more encouraged . Then hip hop took hold and black people became black ape savages.

    By HHH on Jul 20, 2020

  11. I was pleased to hear that THE ANTICHRIST had died. What a fat, piece of shit that pig was.

    By U L E on Jul 20, 2020

  12. Let’s hope that fat ass HHH is next.

    By U L E on Jul 20, 2020

  13. When triple h dies your gunna feel gilty

    By Derrick on Jul 20, 2020

  14. No mudshark white whores back then either and mixed kids . I’ve always wondered why it’s so easy for Asians and people from India to keep to their own race , yet black apes keep trying to pollute our white race , as well as their own. I’ve never seen an Asian or Indian with a black ape . Asian women do occasionally marry white men , but it’s very rare .

    By HHH on Jul 20, 2020

  15. I wonder why I keep repeating myself over and over and over expecting someone to respond favorably to me? Even if they don’t I’ll keep repeating myself just because I have no one to talk to a home.

    By HHH on Jul 20, 2020

  16. No mudpacks or white horses back then either and mixed nuts. Heck, the Beaver didn’t know no nigs. Happy Days had none either. The Fonz woulda run them out of Al’s. Boy oh boy those were the days my friend. We thought they’d never end.

    By HHH on Jul 20, 2020

  17. You imposters need to develop another strategy. Your current one of name stealing is not working. Everyone knows who’s real from who’s not . Middle school basement dwelling retards .

    By HHH on Jul 20, 2020

  18. Triple h , the coon and hi Yeller lovin , Dic suckin Jew bastards is tryin to run us off wit this name hijackin bullshit . I can tell who’s who here. . I’m sure you and DD , Nelson and you can too. We have is losin the war cause the coons is polutin our white race . But the coons , and coon lovin Jew bastards ain’t gonna make us like it

    By Derrick on Jul 20, 2020

  19. They should all get what Joe Pesci got in Casino

    By Derrick on Jul 20, 2020

  20. Baseball bats breakin every bone , dragged and dumped in shallow graves , screamin in pain as the dirt is shoveled on their worthless Jew bastard asses buried alive

    By Derrick on Jul 20, 2020

  21. The late great Frank Vincent doin the honors , just like in the movie

    By Derrick on Jul 20, 2020

  22. Oh for the days of the men in the white sheets. This coon man wit white bitch bullshit wouldn’t happen in them good ole days .

    By Derrick on Jul 20, 2020

  23. triple h , you is right , I never see a gook or Indian goin with a coon . They do stick wit their own . The coons target our white bitches. Guess the gooks got more taste than whites these days . Pretty soon there is gonna be more hi yellers than whites . That’s scary man

    By Derrick on Jul 20, 2020

  24. derrick, the goal of the black apes is to eliminate the white race . Impregnating white mudshark sluts is the way to do it . Most Asians and other races wouldn’t let those savages near their females . Asians and people from India especially believe in racial purity. They are in America to make money , not to breed with gorillas.

    By HHH on Jul 20, 2020

  25. Muhammad Ali and Malcolm X didn’t believe in race mixing . Ali said many times in interviews that , bluebirds with bluebirds , Redbirds with Redbirds etc . He also said in on a talk show in the early seventies, I love my daughters. They look like me . Don’t want no blue eyed pale skinned babies . And no white man should want no kinky haired negros running around . This was the greatest making that statement.

    By Edward on Jul 20, 2020

  26. It’s almost as if the media has a race mixing agenda . Adds featuring mixed couples etc . People of all races are better off with themselves.

    By Edward on Jul 20, 2020

  27. Yes that’s true Muhammad Ali said many times that it defies nature for different races to mix . There is a BBC interview from the early seventies where he makes a point of telling the interviewer how wrong it is . Ali was quite the womanizer in his youth . He had many affairs , but all with black women . The interviewer kept trying to get Ali off his stance . Ali kept reiterating that he wanted his black race kept pure . He mentions Chinese with Hispanics as being wrong too . He basically believed that race mixing went against nature . MLK and Malcolm X had black wives . It’s these modern black ape hip hoppers that started this race mixing garbage with the help of mudsharks.

    By HHH on Jul 20, 2020

  28. I’m sure Ali had thousands of opportunities to have white women in his heyday in the sixties and seventies. He was the most famous man on the planet . He also was a man of principle. Standing against the Viet Nam war , refusing induction into the military and being banned from boxing for three and a half years , basically his prime years . His beliefs in racially purity were spot on .

    By HHH on Jul 20, 2020

  29. When people today compare Colin Kaepernick to Ali , I consider it an insult . Kaepernick is a phoney. A mixed raced shrill raised by a white family . He never experienced what Ali did , not close . Plus Kaepernick never talks . He only issues twitter statements. Ali was out there facing the fire . Making the speaking rounds , doing all the talk shows . Ali never met a microphone and camera he didn’t love .

  30. I wonder why I keep repeating myself over and over and over expecting someone to respond favorably to me? Even if they don’t I’ll keep repeating myself just because I have no one to talk to a home.

  31. I wonder why I keep repeating myself over and over and over expecting someone to respond favorably to me? Even if they don’t I’ll keep repeating myself just because I have no one to talk to a home.

    By Derrick on Jul 20, 2020

  32. Rumor has it that I have a Lil Un, even smaller than HHH’s tiny penis.

    By U L E on Jul 20, 2020

  33. Yeah triple h . Clay was a original. He didn’t believe in that coon / white bitch thing either . Talked about it often . Unfortunately some of his kids married whites and had hi yellers . The champ can’t have been happy bout that

    By Derrick on Jul 20, 2020

  34. derrick, Ali was a shell of his former self in his later years . Parkinson’s syndrome had robbed him of his body and sane mind . I prefer to remember the young Ali , Brash , energetic , bombastic and highly principled. I’m sure he would have been disappointed in what some of his children chose to do .

    By HHH on Jul 20, 2020

  35. It’s been proven that biracial people suffer from identity issues . They usually must choose one or the other . It’s almost always black . You never hear Obama referred to as the biracial president. It’s always the black president. That’s the agenda . Wipe out all the whites .

    By HHH on Jul 20, 2020

  36. derrick, do you miss the taste of Anti’s ass on your lips?

    By HHH on Jul 20, 2020

  37. Yeah triple h . I miss a lot of things about Anti . He had a wife . Anti was the only one of us that ever kissed a girl , even though Anti’s wife is his second cousin and a fat, pigeon toed retard , he still got him some of that skunk snatch .

    By Derrick on Jul 20, 2020

  38. HHH, i have such a raging hardon thinkingbout anti, do u wanna suck my massive man meat

    By Derrick on Jul 20, 2020

  39. Derrick, would be honored to suck your man pole if you promise to ream my butt

    By HHH on Jul 20, 2020

  40. I aint got no quarrel with them viet cong
