Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Bright Light In Winter is the long-awaited third album by Chicago guitarist Jeff Parker. With his associates Chris Lopes (bass) and Chad Taylor (drums), this trio continues their examination of our post-modern musical universe via tuneful compositions by all three members, and an elastic, dynamic approach to improvisation and group interplay - rooted in our familiar musical traditions, but also searching for the new ones. Recorded and mixed by Bundy K. Brown.


Jeff Parker is arguably the most exciting and thoughtful jazz guitarist of the past two decades, a masterful free improviser who's also fluent in everything from postbop to postrock. --Chicago Reader

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By R. Kesler on November 14, 2012
Format: Audio CD
Jeff Parker's music is not relentless, but it is punctuated and enunciated with a mystic sense of fluid rhythms and a sensitivity that at times have a sonic flair to them, sparking images of post-rock and airy etherial movements that ebb and flow with an almost haunting quality ... full of chromatic overtures that are counter-balanced by a solid baseline that doesn't so much interplay with Jeff's well considered and structured playful guitar innovations, as they weave in and out of them, like a flock of birds in flight.

Mr. Parker can be innovative, but here he doesn't allow the stew to boil, only simmer, allowing only occasional notes to seep from under the lid to tickle your taste-buds before venturing off with a controlled swing that both holds your attention and permits you to wander off into the unknown. Neither does Jeff ever cut the tether, he keeps you within his sphere of influence, allowing for that dreamy half-state where one is barely aware that they are dreaming or awake ... a twilight within which Jeff manipulates all the effects, rolling one song into the next by creating an atmosphere of warm half-light washed with passages that sound familiar, yet are actually just interludes leading into The Jeff Parker Trio's luscious meanderings.
