A couple of weeks ago, I managed to catch Evan Parker play at Cafe Oto, where he had a weeks’ residency. The night I could make, his trio with Mark Sanders on drums and John Edwards on bass were joined by Polish saxophonist Mikolaj Trzaska.
To be honest, I wasn’t really in the mood. Trzaska seemed full on, a strident stream of notes flowing from his alto, and after a while it felt overwhelming. I didn’t stay for the second set.
