Free Improv session at Robadors 23 – 22 Jan ’15

Ramon Prats (drums) Àlex Reviriego (bass) Míriam Fèlix (cello) An interesting departure from the usual instrumentation this week, with the addition of Míriam Fèlix’s cello and the subtraction of any type of woodwind whatsoever. That’s what I love about these Thursday evening sessions – the recipe changes every week. So, what we have is practically…
