                  Parker has published three volumes of poetry, and wrote the emotionally gripping text for "When You Smile, The big Orange Mountain Cries", a work performed on this videotape by Parker (on wind instruments and percussion as well as bass) with his current large ensemble the Little Huey Creative Music Orchestra. The piece courses through subtle and rich timbres, captivating solos and intricate counterpoint, most of which arises spontaneously to support the deeply felt vocals of Leena Conquest. In his interview, Parker discusses the term "creative music" as signifying that kind of performance, in whatever style, where the music "procreates" or takes on a life of its own. His describes his piece, dedicated to the inspirational sharecropper Fannie Lou Haymer who in the 1960's struggled to register voters in Mississippi (where she was assaulted by reactionary police), a dedication which he further extends to anyone struggling to be this or her own person. Characterized by the Village Voice as "the most consistently brilliant free bassist of all time", William Parker has been in demand as a performer with such notable avant-jazz musicians as Ed Blackwell, Don Cherry, Bill Dixon, Milford Graves, Billy Higgins, Sunny Murray, and Cecil Taylor. Parker is also a prolific composer who has written in a wide range of forms including opera (eg. "A Thousand Cranes" for orchestra, dance, and a 1000 school children performed at the opening of the UN Special Session on Disarmament in June, 1982), oratorio, ballet (eg. "Light Slices My Heart" for voices and small ensemble with Aztec poetry), film scores, various works for large and small instrumental ensembles, and soliloquies for solo instruments. Produced by Jim Staley Directed by Matt Mehlan
