Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Arts, Lectures & Seminars

William Parker is a bassist, composer and community organizer widely recognized as a foundational figure in avant-jazz over the past several decades, with important collaborations with Cecil Taylor, Amiri Baraka, David S. Ware and many others. He is also a historian and scholar, and author of three important books of musician-to-musician interviews. 

Cisco Bradley is a professor of American History at Pratt and the author of an authorized biography on Parker, Universal Tonality, which was released this year. As we consider how "jazz" history is told and who tells it, this is a particularly vibrant opportunity for conversation with a living artist (who is also a writer/scholar) and their biographer.
