Tony Marsh

Today's Babel Babble on ntslive.co.uk includes a tribute to drummer Tony Marsh who sadly died yesterday. What a great man! He was a person who belied his age, playing through to his last weeks. Just recently playing with Roscoe Mitchell.

He had what I would call a beautiful rolling style, with elegance and intensity.

His great trio with Evan Parker and John Edwards sadly never recorded. It was a privilege to hear them every month. Next week's gig on 19th was supposed to be this trio. It'll be quite a night. (Unfortunately, I won't be there!!)
