After his stand-out performance here last year as part of Tony-Joe Bucklash with Tony Buck, Joe Bevan and Dominc Lash, the great American improvising guitarist Joe Morris returns to OTO for a night of solo performance. With over 50 albums to his name and a long list of collaborators including Matthew Shipp, William Parker, Joe Maneri, Ivo Perelman, Ken Vandermark and DKV Trio, Daniel Levin and David S. Ware, Morris has carved out a place as one of the most original and distinctive guitarists working today. This performance is a rare opportunity to catch a solo set from a master at work. "… a guitarist whose sound is completely his own, oscillating between deadpan sweetness and dangerous, shrapnel-like caprice." - The Village Voice.
