Description (English):
“Evan Parker is a virtuosic solo improviser, and these soprano saxophone recordings, made in England in 1978, are perhaps the next best thing to seeing him perform live. Monoceros is divided into four parts, but each is of comparable sonic quality. Parker uses rapid tonguing techniques and circular breathing to create a sound all his own, marked by the simultaneous intonation of multiple notes. When one listens to Evan Parker, one hears a note as well as all the residual tones around it; each breath ends up sounding like a battle between the different registers of the horn. At various times, Parker’s saxophone sounds like dolphin speech, electronic tape squeals, or human murmurs; namely, anything but what it actually is. His language on the instrument is essential listening for anyone interested in acoustic experimental music.”-Henry M. Shteamer, allmusic.com

Description (Japanese):
「こんなアルバムが埋まっているなんて、やはり今のLA のジャズ・シーンは底が知れない。改めてそんなことを思わせる作品だ。」~柳樂光隆(ジャズ評論家/Jazz The New Chapter)
音楽一家に生まれ、“西海岸版ジュリアード音楽院”とも呼ばれるコルパーン音楽学校でジャズの概念と実用的音楽理論を学んだブランドンは、これまでにフライング・ロータス、ケンドリック・ラマー、スヌープ・ドッグ、スティービー・ワンダー、アース・ウインド&ファイアー、ベイビーフェイス、アリシア・キーズ、マーカス・ミラーをはじめ数えきれないほどの著名ミュージシャンたちとライヴやレコーディングで共演を果たしてきた。今、この鍵盤奏者なしにはLA のジャズ・シーンは語れないと言ってもいいだろう。本作『Self Taught』は2011年にCD-Rで極少量のみ自主リリースされたにも関わらず、まるでヘッドハンターズを彷彿とさせるソウル、ファンク、ディスコ、ブギーを横断するジャズ・プレイヤーたちの活き活きとしたセッションが話題を呼んだ知る人ぞ知る幻の一枚である。
