EVAN PARKER & PAUL LYTTON "Three Other Stories" (1971-4) EMANEM 4002

Three unbelievable journeys with Parker on saxophones plus traditional and home-made instruments, and Lytton on a vast range of percussion and live electronics. Each trip covers a whole variety of colours, fusing influences as diverse as John Cage, John Coltrane and Tibetan monks, into a unique and original music. 69 minutes - previously unissued.

4018 PAUL RUTHERFORD & ISKRA 1912 "Sequences 72 & 73" (1972-4)

EVAN PARKER & PAUL LYTTON "Two Octobers" (1972-5) EMANEM 4009

The two concert improvisations, which comprise an hour of this CD, are perhaps the best examples of this most adventurous of duos on record. Unlike "Three Other Stories", Parker concentrates on soprano saxophone for nearly all of the three pieces herein. Lytton's use of electronics has never been surpassed. 76 minutes - previously unissued.
