The Dogs of Nile

by Evan Parker / Paul G. Smyth



"a ferocious set ... it’s almost the Odyssey to Calenture’s Iliad. Or, it’s Finnegans Wake to Calenture’s Ulysses ... fantastic" ★★★★★ — The Free Jazz Collective (Album of the Month)

"two great figures of avant-garde jazz ... 'The Dogs of Nile' is filled with evocative ideas ... Gorgeous and light, expressive and moving, playful and gentle, joyful and dramatic ... frantic, tremendous, passionate, thrilling ... beautiful and luminous ... The music of this album is vital." — Avant Scena
