"This group—with Hamid Drake, drums; Rob Brown, alto saxophone; and Lewis Barnes, trumpet— has been a primary focus of the world-renowned William Parker’s multifarious talents since he first brought them together in 2000. They have released three widely acclaimed albums: O’Neal’s Porch (2001), Raining on the Moon (2002) and Sound Unity (2005), and have engendered joy and awe amongst audiences around the world whenever they perform. The history of jazz, inside out, is at their collective fingertips. The Quartet’s performance at Yoshi’s will feature a sneak preview of compositions contained in their upcoming new album, Little Bird (AUM Fidelity, fall 2008). "These four create palpable magic from the bubbling cauldron of empathic ensemble playing and daring solo work backed by masterful technical skill” (All About Jazz)."
