Recorded at Ratio (TONE Festival – Show #7), June 24, 2017.

Arrington De Dionyso + John Oswald - [improvisation]

Although the local "jazz" festival is anticipated in some quarters, it seemed that too often there was no home there for adventurous and experimental creators. Thus, out of necessity, the TONE Festival was born to give these touring musicians a chance to connect with local audiences and artists. A collaboration between Burn Down the Capital's Tad Michalak, Ron Gaskin (a.k.a. Rough Idea) and Karen Ng and Daniel Pencer, the goal was to create shows that were rewarding for players and listeners alike. Coming after their own funeral series, this was also the last concert at beloved local DIY venue Ratio.

Anyone who showed up on time for the scheduled first set had already missed something, as Sook-Yin Lee (who'd be playing later) had facilitated with saxophone meet-up between Arrington De Dionyso (on the left here) and John Oswald (on the right). Just a little amuse-bouche of a honkfest to begin the night.
