William Parker was born Bronx, New York City. He was not formally trained as a classical player, though he did study with Jimmy Garrison, Richard Davis, and Wilbur Ware and learned the tradition. Parker is one of few jazz bassists who regularly plays arco. He also plays several other instruments from around the world, including the West African kora.

While Parker has been active since the early 1970s; he has had a higher public profile since the early 1990s. William Parker first came to public attention with pianist Cecil Taylor. He has long been a member of saxophonist David S. Ware's quartet and in Peter Brötzmann' s groups.
He is a member of the cooperative Other Dimensions In Music. Together with his wife organizes the annual Vision Festival in New York City.
A note: I'll be always grateful to  William Parker for donating a double bass to Henry Grimes.

Trio around the unique Peter Jacquemyn. Plays in his own unique and powerful way, plus helped out to make this line-up possible. Peter is coming to play with the tallest musician in Brussels called Grégoir Tirtiaux, who's bringing different saxophones. And sided by the incredible rhythmic and yelling tuba player Jan Pillaert.
