Black Editions presents Historic Music Past Tense Future, the first ever album to feature the meeting of Peter Brotzmann, Milford Graves and William Parker. Three of the towering figures in the history of Free Jazz forge an incredibly vital free music born from lifetimes of uncompromising, ceaseless artistry.

The album was recorded on March 29, 20002 at CBGBs, NYC - this would be the final time that this trio would perform together and only the third in a span of 17 years. Historic Music Past Tense Future is the inaugural release by Black Editions Archive and the first in a series of records that will present previously unreleased works featuring Milford Graves.
