Thrilled to host a very special two-day / three-event residency with one of the all-time great rhythm sections in jazz – the incomparabale pairing of drummer / percussionist Hamid Drake and bassist William Parker!
Drake and Parker first came together as part of Peter Brotzmann’s legendary Die Like A Dog Quartet with trumpeter Toshinori Kondo and have since gone on to form a sympatico partnership, working as a duo and together on many of William Parker’s larger group projects, as well as providing some of the stand-out moments of OTO's lifespan. Uk's finest free Improv Group the heavyweight Black Top join on th e2nd Day for a special quintet with vocals provided by Elaine Mitchener
