Albert Cirera (tenor & soprano saxophones) Olivier Jambois (guitar) Àlex Reviriego (bass) Vasco Trilla (drums) As Deep Thought pointed out, 42 is the answer to the great question of life, the universe and everything – what ritual incantations and great truths might we expect from the 42nd Nocturna Discordia…?

Paolo Angeli (Sardinian prepared guitar) Sasha Agranov (cello) Oriol Roca (drums, percussion) Piccola Orchestra Gagarin are a peculiar outfit. An Italian-Russian-Catalan trio with unusual instrumentation, pairing a cello with a guitar that has been practically turned into a cello (on steroids) plus an agile and inventive percussive approach that goes beyond the simple drumkit. As…
