Amongst the shows over the next seven days, we’re delighted to welcome one of the great contemporary pianists, Alexander Hawkins, to OTO for a specially curated three-day residency covering an eclectic cross-section of Hawkins’ expansive musical output. Whether it’s performing his own compositions with ensemble, playing with regular collaborators such as Elaine Mitchener and John Edwards, or guesting with the likes of Joe McPhee, Louis Moholo and Evan Parker, Hawkins has provided a huge array of standout moments at OTO over the years and it’s a pleasure to play host to him for several performances across three days.
This week we add 5 releases from the latest label to join the shop – James Lindbloom’s Roaratorio. Having started out in 2000 with a special Steve Lacy release (Sideways), Roaratorio has gone on to release new and archival material from artists such as Philip Corner, David Marantha, Nelson Gastaldi, Joe McPhee, and Sun Ra. More to come over the summer, but for now you can find these first few here.
New annoiuncements this week included shows for Ken Vandermark / Paal Nilssen-Love, The Dwarfs of East Agouza, and a special two-day residency for Burton Greene.
