Evan Parker is to John Coltrane as Samuel Beckett is to James Joyce

“We were using the term ‘modern jazz’, and the ‘modern’ aspect was just as important as the ‘jazz’ aspect. If it’s going to be modern, it has to say something that hasn’t been said before. Originally, I took my direction from trying to play like John Coltrane, and then I realised that this won’t do, because the whole point about what makes Coltrane great is that he found his own voice. You’re going to have to find your own voice if its going to mean anything at all to you, let alone anybody else. So I started to dip my toe into the idea of ‘What remains to be done?’ ‘What comes next?’ ‘What are the emotional next steps?’”
