Restocked. The recordings on this double LP are taken from the first night of Roscoe Mitchell's inaugural two-day residency at Café OTO in 2012, and his first time playing with drummer Tony Marsh and double bassist John Edwards. It was one of those nights where the music electrifies the room. Everyone on edge. Everything alive with the possibilities. Although there was much talk after the concert of the group playing together again, this would sadly be the first and last time the trio would play. Tony passed away unexpectedly just a few weeks later, making this his last documented performance and a fitting tribute to a truly great drummer and percussionist. The LPs are housed in two-color screen-printed sleeves on archival quality card stock; designed by Oliver Pitt. High quality 180 gram vinyl pressing at Record Industry, The Netherlands. Recorded by James Dunn and John Chantler at Café OTO, March 9, 2012. Mixed by John Chantler. Mastered by Andreas "Lupo" Lubich at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin.
