Cast Iron Fact , 5/10
Slippage , 5/10

Andrea Parkins was raised (artistically speaking) by jazz saxophonist Ellery Eskelin, who hired her to improvise on accordion and eventually gave her equal credit on Green Bermudas. Parkins' first solo, Cast Iron Fact (Knitting Factory, 1995) displayed a curious fusion of jazz, rock and avantgarde. On Slippage (Knitting Factory, 1999) she's also an accomplished pianist, and her piano sonatas (faithful to the free-jazz tradition) compete with her chamber compositions for accordion drones, saxophone and percussion, which reach out to world-music and Hendrix-style jamming. Electronics, samples and guitar effects add layers of cryptic meaning to the music. (Translation by/ Tradotto da xxx)
