Poet and soul singer Marvin Tate and experimental musician Joseph Clayton Mills met during Tate’s residency at the Hideout in the summer of 2013. They soon discovered a shared interest in improvisation, spontaneity, and seeking out new creative challenges for themselves. Excited at the chance to operate outside of their respective musical comfort zones, they began an ongoing collaboration. At ESS, they perform together for the first time as The Amazing Mister Orange Presents, in which Tate’s stories, memories, and songs are fragmented and reconfigured by Mills into an audio-textual odyssey.
