Piano - Agustí FernándezTenor Saxophone - Evan Parker Evan Parker doesn't record often in a sax/piano duo and I've found many of the sessions he has laid down (collaborations with Georg Gräwe, John Tilbury, Borah Bergman, and Matthew Shipp) to be uneven affairs. But there are a few memorable meetings, like his two duo recordings with Stan Tracey or his duo with Misha Mengelberg. And while Catalan pianist Agusti Fernández has recorded some of his strongest work in duos, they have been with bassists (Peter Kowald and Barry Guy) or with guitarists (Derek Bailey and Joe Morris.) That said, Fernández and Parker have been working out a particularly fruitful collaboration over the last two decades in a variety of contexts (duos, a trio collaboration with Herb Robertson, a collaboration with the Parker/Guy Lytton trio, participation in Barry Guy's New Orchestra project, and in Parker's Electro-Acoustic Ensemble). The two last recorded as a duo in 1996 so this live recording, which captures the set the two performed as part of the 2009 Festival de Jazz de Barcelona, is particularly welcome.
