Cafe Oto's label releasing Tony Marsh's final recorded performance, plus Thurston Moore and Mats Gustafsson

This month Cafe Oto's label Oto Roku releases recordings made on the first night of Roscoe Mitchell's two day residency at the East London venue last year. The performance included Mitchell on saxophone and flute, John Edwards on double bass, and one of the final performances by drummer Tony Marsh. The record is dedicated to Marsh, who died a few weeks later. Also incoming on the label is a recording of Mats Gustafsson and Thurston Moore. More details here.
