Guitarist and composer Jeff Parker stopped by Amoeba Music in San Francisco to share some of what he’s been listening to for their What’s in My Bag series, including music by Madlib; Eddie Harris; Doug Hammond & David Durrah; Elements; Ray Charles; Sly & Robbie Meet King Tubby; Sphere; The John Carter Octet; Jakob Bro, Arve Henriksen, and Jorge Rossy; Zawinul; and William S. Fischer. You can take a look inside here:

Jeff Parker’s latest record, Forfolks, was released on International Anthem / Nonesuch Records in December. The album includes interpretations of Thelonious Monk's “Ugly Beauty” and the standard “My Ideal,” plus six original compositions: two earlier tunes, “Four Folks" and “La Jetée,” and four new loop-driven, stratiform works that marry melodic improvisation with electronic textures. "A beautifully freewheeling, guitar-driven expression of joy and musical exploration," says Guitar World, "a masterpiece of improvisation." "Beautiful, resonant, and focused," says the Quietus. "This matches anything he’s produced during his career so far." You can hear it and get it here.
