“Heart Trio features three lifelong-devoted fellow travelers on the path of healing through sound. World-renowned & revered bassist, multi-instrumentalist, composer, improvisor, community leader William Parker has performed and recorded extensively with both master pianist, multi-instrumentalist, composer, improviser, inveterate performer Cooper-Moore & master drummer, improviser, composer Hamid Drake over the past 30+ years. And, the three of them have been core since 2012 in Parker’s reborn In Order To Survive quartet. Heart Trio is, remarkably then, their debut as a trio on record. Here, Wiliam plays doson ngoni, dudek, and flutes of bamboo, cedar, and walnut. Cooper-Moore on his hand-crafted ashimba and harp; Hamid Drake on frame drum and drum kit. All of this music was collectively composed at the time of its creation.
Some time ago, I recall Hamid marveling at how William could pick up seemingly any instrument and play music upon it. The flutes & ngoni which Parker performs on here, he has been playing music on for many, many years. Same with Cooper-Moore – he built the instruments he plays here in the 1970s. Suffice to say, each of these men are long- time master musicians and non-stop practitioners of creative music.”
