Amongst the shows over the next seven days, the great South African drummer Louis Moholo-Moholo returns to OTO with his quintet, featuring longtime collaborators Jason Yarde and Shabaka Hutchings (saxophones), John Edwards (bass), and Alexander Hawkins (piano). Each concert of the 5 Blokes is a special event, and this will be their first London concert in nine months (as well as their first full performance at Cafe OTO since the 4 Blokes were augmented by the addition of Hutchings).
This week’s digital release is Cath & Phil Tyler’s fantastic ‘Dumb Supper’ on MIE, ahead of their show here tomorrow night. “Folk moves into a new era with Cath and Phil. Their combination of earthiness and grit, raw yet hearfelt and beautiful singing and immaculate playing makes this one of the most exciting and most moving albums I’ve heard in a long while.” Fiona Talkington, BBC Radio 3’s ‘Late Junction’
Hope to see you here.
