The album 'To Roy' dedicated to trumpeter Roy Campbell, who died in 2014, is the first collaboration between
K. Curtis Lyle, Liner notes: Hear what this duo collaboration intends and does with sound! It immediately bridges the gap that excludes one art form from another. No need to look for the horizon just 'listen up'! William Parker's vertical spirit sense; the speaking, the writing, the huge heart that shares with and elevates others is evident immediately upon hearing the round depth sound of his bass. The very first eight bars of Variation on a Theme of Marvin Gaye show him extracting individual stars from the collective urn of memory. Oliver Lake, musician, painter, poet, answers / counterpoises with the sound of an eternally awakened weather Buddha map, a sorrow song that always leads home. This is a sound conversation; a call and its instant response. These men lay special logos-claim and entrance to the place that is not a place. In my mind this is the ancient, present and future definition of the shaman. The irresistible force solves the conundrum by embracing the immoveable object.
"To Roy", gewidmet dem Trompeter Roy Campbel, ist die erste Zusammenarbeit zwischen dem Saxophonisten Oliver Lake und dem Bassisten William Parker: Zwei der bedeutenden Pioniere des aktuellen Jazz, zwei der grossen Musikerpersönlichkeiten Amerikas, zwei Meister der Komposition und Improvisation.
"Roy" is trumpeter Roy Campbell, who died in 2014. After a concert at The Stone in New York, part of Intakt's festival in January 2014, Lake and Parker were invited to record their first album together – which they did just five days after Campbell's death. The resulting disc is divided almost equally between compositions by each, with 2 of Us and the title piece jointly-credited.
