Jeff Parker

Suite For Max Brown (International Anthem)

Jeff Parker is the guitarist for the cult Chicago-based outfit, Tortoise, one of the most critically lauded post-rocking bands from the 1990s. He’s a man used to pushing envelopes and here the multi-instrumentalist is in fine and adventurous form, flitting between jazz, rock and hip-hop with a significant amount of sonic derring do, but also retaining a warmth that really pulls you in. No chin stroking exercise this.
