A pioneering force in New York’s underground scene, Arthur Russell remains best known for his disco and avant-garde cello sounds.
As Philip Glass recalls, “this was a guy who could sit down with a cello, and sing with it in a way that no one on earth has ever done before or will do again.”
Connecting these different strands of his work, The World Of Arthur Russell features his solo releases as well as several Loose Joints and Dinosaur L tracks.
It follows the discovery of an Arthur Russell concert from 1985 for the first time, by downtown NYC non-profit arts institution Roulette.
