This trio came about when John Dikeman had the opportunity to create a new group to present at Doek Festival #12. Dikeman went straight for one of the greatest rhythm sections of the last 20 years – asking William Parker and Hamid Drake to join him in a trio. William and Hamid had been a big influence on John’s playing since he discovered free jazz as a teenager. The trio has toured twice in Europe, released 2 albums, and is currently booking a tour for autumn of 2016.


“The results here are powerful, exciting and engrossing – a real endeavour of heart and soul.”

“All in all, Live at La Resistenza is a supremely musical date, and almost as exhilarating on record as it must have been live.”
