Bassist William Parker has formed productive liaisons with some wonderfully expressive alto saxophone players in the past-Rob Brown and Jemeel Moondoc both spring to mind. But To Roy represents his first time on record with Oliver Lake, best known as a third of Trio 3 and a quarter of the World Saxophone Quartet. They recorded their duo album during the month of dedicatee trumpeter Roy Campbell's unexpected passing at age 61 in January 2014. Each brings a sheaf of compositions to the session. They form the basis for an intimate exchange which celebrates as much as it mourns.
Album · 2015 · 11 Songs. To Roy is a tribute to the late free jazz trumpeter Roy Campbell, and it marks the first collaboration of saxophonist Oliver Lake and bassist William Parker. Parker worked with Campbell in groups such as Pyramid Trio and Other Dimensions in Music. Parker’s Variation on a Theme of Marvin Gaye is an appropriate opener; Campbell started out playing hard bop and was no stranger to R&B. On Lake’s Check, the saxophonist burns it up and Parker’s exciting solo includes both round, warm tones and a flurry of prickly notes

In January 2014 the innovative jazz trumpeter Roy Campbell died from cardiovascular disease. To Roy," is a spirited and powerful tribute to him, by two of his peers: Oliver Lake and William Parker. While both have an extensive discography, this is the first pairing of the two on record. And while the duets of alto saxophone and bass is nothing new, this short, intense free form effort is magnificent in its originality and creativity. For one thing, Oliver Lake is at the top of his game here. The album feels unusually short, yet it is 50 minutes long. That's how engaging their interplay is. Standout tracks are: the opening track "Variation on a Theme by Marvin Gaye," a jubilant and exciting free form play on "Inner City Blues," Parker echoing the funky bass line while Lake riffs all over it. Flight Plan" is a muscular track, the two artists slugging out a variety of textures and sounds with almost supernatural speed.
