# ONE WITH SPECIAL GUEST STEVE WILLIAMSON cover art
John Cratchley So pleased to see Orphy back with this terrific recording in his duo with Pat Thomas…a wonderful combination of (as the blurb says) acoustic jazz improv and lo-fi electronic tech: it’s exciting! Adding Steve Williamson to the brew is definitely intoxicating…drink up!

Corey Mwamba Pat and Orphy are simultaneously creating and re-defining their own genre with this; distinctive samples that are bound in diaspora matched with their razor-sharp sense of timing and sound placement. Williamson is the icing on the very rich cake.Favorite track: Archaic Nubian StepDub.
