Peter Zummo's Arthur Russell-Featuring 'Zummo with an X' Gets Reissue Treatment
Optimo co-founder JD Twitch said in a statement [via The Quietus], "I first discovered Peter Zummo when I first discovered Arthur Russell. I kept hearing that trombone sound throughout Arthur's music and through scanning through various label credits made the connection that this Peter Zummo character was a constant collaborator with Arthur."
Russell's cello appears throughout Zummo with an X, which was recorded as a trio with Bill Ruyle on tabla. This 180-gram vinyl version will mark the first time the album has been available on wax since 1985.
