Hamid Drake (Chicago, Illinois) - drums, percussion
William Parker (New York, New York) - double bass, doussin gouni

One of the most powerful and enduring ensembles in free jazz had its start in 1993 with the album “Die Like a Dog”, a tribute to the visionary saxophonist Albert Ayler.

In 2003 The All Music Guide called the band "one of the leading ventures in the history of avant-garde jazz.”

"Peter Brötzmann is a specter of grim emotion & raw energy, whether he's playing tarogato, tenor, or a clarinet. He is one of the great existential improvisers of free jazz, in that his intensity does not seem to move toward transcendence but instead speaks of expanding passion. William Parker & Hamid Drake support, structure & alleviate Brötzmann's testimony, adding & sustaining pulsing patterns that invoke African & Afro-Cuban ceremony."
-Stuart Broomer, Coda

“William Parker has emerged as the most important leader of the current avant-garde scene in jazz.”
- Steve Greenlee, the Boston Globe

“The most consistently brilliant free jazz bassist of all time.”
- Village Voice

“For over thirty years, drummer Hamid Drake has been the holy anchor for countless jazz and improvisational artists, helping to take their visions to higher rhythmic levels while at the same time carving out space within them for his own explorations. He has been one of the most consistently daring and compelling drummers around.”
- Mike Wood, Perfect Sound Forever
