was on the evening. Evan Parker: tenor saxophone; John Edwards: double bass; Chris
Corsano: drums. All compositions by Evan Parker/John Edwards/Chris Corsano. Artwork by
Dennis Tyfus. Mixed by Rupert Clervaux at Grays Inn Road, London. Mastered by Andreas

ROKU    015     ROGER TURNER/YUKIHIRO ISSO : TAKANEHISHIGU              LP      05.2016
                (Note : LP , 500 copies)

Born in 1964, Yukihiro Isso is a Japanese Noh flutist (hayashi-kata fue-kata) from
a family that has been playing this instrument since the 16th century. Isso is also
an accomplished improviser and has performed with the likes of Cecil Taylor, Peter
Brötzmann and John Zorn. Born 1946, Roger Turner grew up amongst the Canterbury
musical life of the 1960s with a strong jazz foundation. Since 1974 work has been
concentrated on exploring a more personal percussion language through the processes
of improvisation. 'Takanehishigu' is the audio documentation of the first time these
artists played together. The results are a breathtaking new music which remains
respectful to the individual traditions whilst simultaneously subverting them.
'Takanehishigu' was recorded live at Cafe Oto on 23rd September 2015 by Shaun Crook.
Limited to 500 copies.

ROKURE  002     DEREK BAILEY/EVAN PARKER : THE LONDON CONCERT           LP      06.2018

Otoroku Records (Thurston Moore, Mats Gustafsson) tends to focus on archiving
performances at the London experimental hub Cafe OTO, but this release sees them
making a play in the reissues game. Originally released in 1975, this record sees
two titans of the British avant garde lining up alongside one other on a London
stage. Guitarist Derek Bailey and saxophonist Evan Parker twang, bang and skronk
away to intriguing effect on The London Concert.
Originally released on the INCUS label in 1975.
