Free Spirits is an exciting new quintet, with a live show that’s as exhilarating to the casual listener as it is to the most ardent jazz fan. Led by pianist Teri Parker, the group celebrates the music of Geri Allen and Mary Lou Williams. Parker developed the project for a multi-night residency at Toronto’s Rex Jazz and Blue Bar in 2019, to an overwhelmingly positive response. With fresh arrangements from Parker, Free Spirits breathe new life into decades-old music while showcasing considerable improvisatory gifts.
