2015 CD release.
"CHOC (highest recommendation)" –Jazz Magazine (FR)
"Rewind: Top 50 Releases of 2015" –The Wire
"Music of gravitas from a modern day icon." –Jazzwise
"Bassist, composer and bandleader William Parker is a bottomless well of creativity, and his endless run of superb recordings continues with For Those Who Are, Still" –JazzTimes
"A release of combustive and sacred energy, in which profoundly masterful singers play a central role, including the rooted singing and spoken word of gorgeous contralto Leena Conquest on Disc 1; deeply organic incantations of Senegalese griot Mola Sylla and classically-trained Indian singer Sangeeta Bandyopadhyay on Disc 2; and eight fierce principal singers of the NFM Choir on Disc 3. Parker and his ensembles walk into the face of Civil Rights horror and ride currents of the cosmic-as-ever-present on long-form works harnessing order into chaos and unleashing chaos into order. This is a must-have set for all Parker fans and anyone who wants to expand their ears; it is movingly outside the box." –The New York City Jazz Record
