Bassist William Parker and multi-instrumentalist Daniel Carter (saxophone, flute, trumpet) have been major figures in avant-garde jazz since the early 1970's. Italian drummer Federico Ughi moved to New York in 2000 and was quickly welcomed into the experimental scene. When they visit the Bop Shop on Sunday, they'll be joined by another multi-instrumentalist, Toronto's Watson Jennison.
