Double bassist, multi-instrumentalist and composer, William Parker, is a key component in the continuing vitality of the “free jazz” movement. I’ve seen him play many times in his native New York, including at the Vision Festival organized by Arts for Art, an organization chaired by his wife, Patricia Nicholson Parker. William is ubiquitous on free jazz and other records, and a poet on the side. When I went to see him play a duet with Daniel Carter at the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural & Educational Center in Manhattan on January 27, 2014, he was kind enough to let me videotape him discussing his experience with "flow states," which he calls “the entrance into the tone world.” Not suprisingly, his first experience with them was while he was playing music, an activity through which he regularly experiences them. Produced, directed and shot by Rick Klaus Theis. (c Theis 2014)
