descriptions, reviews, &c.

Percussionist Tony Marsh (Mike Westbrook Orchestra, Mike Osborne, London Improvisers Orchestra, &c &c.) in four percussion solos and eleven duos with keyboardist Veryan Weston on church organ. The release is sequenced by punctuations of Marsh's "Stop Time" improvisations (1-4), each of which proceeds immediately into a series of duos with Weston. The pieces are all captured beautifully in the natural resonance of the St. Peter's Church of Whistable, England, where compatriots Evan Parker, Sten Sandell and John Russell have also recently recorded.
