This is the last post of 2015 and, with Orrù, Mar, Rocha“Live at MIA 2015” (EndTitles) – we’re at the best of list compiled by Dave Foxall’s at A Jazz Noise.

The Orrù, Mar, Rocha trio was born at MIA, a big festival/meeting of improvised music at a Atouguia da Baleia a tiny city in Portugal by suggestion of Paulo Chagas – one of the festival’s curator and producer. It was a pleasure to play and we decided to keep it flowing, release that recording and play more.
