Vasco Trilla – drums

One more amazing night of free improvisation at the Nocturna Discordia sessions in Barcelona, this one was the 33rd edition and we were lucky to have Christer Bothén and Miquel Jordá as guests. Smooth yet sharp music, we naturally led to short improvisations. Playing small – and sometimes miniature, pieces, changing the instrumentation on each of them made this session very dynamic and fun. we were also lucky enough to have Dave Foxall there to write his impressions about it for the Jazz Journal UK.

Nocturna Discordia #33, 8th July 2015

Amazing concert at Nocturna Discordia #33.

We were lucky to have Miquel Jordá bringing Christer Bothén to Barcelona, to work on a project called Laboratorio del Silencio. Then, there they were, that 8th July 2015 , at Soda Acústic playing with Vasco Trilla and El Pricto at Nocturna Discordia #33.

I got there early to watch the concert when I was suddenly threatened to go back home and bring my clarinets. What I promptly did.

The quintet was:
Christer Bothén– bass and contrabass clarinets;
Miquel Jordá – sopranino saxophone;
El Pricto – clarinet and alto saxophone;
Vasco Trilla – drums; and me,
Luiz Rocha – soprano and bass clarinets.

Those nice phone photos were shot by Roberto Domínguez.
