The band TORSO is Ken G and Orie. Ken is from Tokyo underground rock band Group, who have previously released on P-Vine Records.
Summoning the vibes of Arthur Russell, and minimal composition, the duo use cello, flute, glockenspiel, piano and soprano sax to hone a warm, organic sound, already getting airplay on Japan Blues' show on NTS radio.
Self released on their own label Ozato, pressed at the only surviving independent pressing plant in Japan, Toyo Kasei.
Sleeve artwork is by Masaya Nakahara (Violent Onsen Geisha, Hair Stylistics).
