Marc Ribot: Café Oto, London

Ludovic Hunter-Tilney, Financial Times, 23 January 2018

MARC RIBOT is best known for his work for other musicians. That's Ribot's off-centre, jagged guitar on Rain Dogs, Tom Waits's 1985 album, the start of an abiding association between the pair. The New York guitarist has also appeared on recordings ranging from the bracingly avant-garde (John Zorn) to the smoothly palatable (Norah Jones).
