Welcome to the website of Washington DC based saxophonist and composer Jonathan Parker.


Available Now on One Trick Dog Records

“It’s an exciting octet date that’s chock-full of tight ensemble work and compelling solo statements. Parker utilizes all of the tone colors and rhythmic tools at his disposal here, alternately creating swinging unison statements, punchy background figures, measured support, and gorgeous chorale-like passages. Interloper is an album that shows the full depth and breadth of his talent(s), both as player and writer.  Three and a half stars.”

- All About Jazz

“Parker’s album Interloper is, first and foremost, a showcase for the local leader’s writing in both arrangements and compositions. Lucky for us, that writing happens to be superb.”
