Free jazz pioneer Evan Parker heads up a fitting tribute to two mammoth figures of Walthamstow, free improvising legend John Russell and socialist campaigner William Morris. Recorded in William Morris’ home-turned-gallery, across the road from Russell’s house, Winns Win is yet another deeply spiritual and demonically snaking record of out-there improvisation from Parker, in which each moment his sax takes wild turns from ceremonial drones to whip-cracking volatility.

The original artwork is ‘Design for Flowerpot embroidery’ (designed c.1876) by William Morris, with additional design by Oliver Bancroft. The Gallery notes “Morris based the design on two Italian seventeenth-century lacis-work panels acquired by the South Kensington Museum in 1875. Lacis is a handmade net onto which a design is darned.” Thanks to William Morris Gallery and Waltham Forest Council for their support in producing the record.
