Reflector #22: Chris Parker – “Late In Lisbon”

Sax and violin come in to help Chris Parker connect to the city.

“Reflector” is a series by Atlas correspondent David Soares about songs by non-Portuguese bands inspired — in many cases, rather mysteriously — by the westernmost European nation.

Chris Parker is a New York-based jazz pianist from Oregon. This is the title track from his 2003 release Late In Lisbon, an album where the sax and especially the violin that accompany him help define the texture of the record, also with a nudge to tropical sonorities, particularly Brazilian. Really worth the listen.
