Barry Guy and I first met and played together in a version of the Spontaneous Music Ensemble in the days of the legendary Little Theatre Club.

The late John Stevens , visionary prophet of the coming music was the key figure at the centre of things who brought us together.

“So it goes“ - John often used this figure of speech.

I was reminded of this when I was looking through Samuel Beckett’s Collected Letters, hoping to glean some titles, knowing that Barry would be happy with a Beckett quote. Somewhere on one of the three thousand one hundred and eighty two pages I recall Beckett using the same expression in signing off a letter.

Two of our heroes connected by these three words in this way give us our title, which indeed expresses the very nature of creating music together.

“So It Goes.”
Evan Parker
