Tri-Borough Triptych is a bit of a connect-the-dots release comprised of three live duo performances recorded around London in 2012 and 2013. The first captures a performance by long-time cohorts Eddie Prévost and Evan Parker; the second, a duo between Prévost and Sebastian Lexer, a regular member of Prévost’s recent pool of collaborators; and the final, a first-time meeting between Parker and Lexer.

The Wire

Hearing Evan Parker make music with Eddie Prévost, on the first of these three lengthy duets recorded in three different London boroughs, is like watching a pair of tai chi masters sparring. Parker’s tenor and Prévost’s bowed and struck percussion draw buoyancy from each other’s energy as they alternately push and yield. Together they move with feline lightness, agility and balance, even when the music’s mood is stormy and turbulent.
