3rd Impro Jam @ Nocturna Discordia

Jam de Impro 3
This was Nocturna Discordia #56 and the 3rd Free Improvisation Jam Session.
Barcelona, 20 January 2016

The trio that opened the night was:
Patxi Valera – drums
Àlex Reviriego – double bass
Luiz Rocha – soprano and bass clarinets

Then, once again the routine was:
1. pick a name out of a hat;
2. throw a four-sided dice to define if the musician is playing either solo, duo, trio or quartet;
3. back to the hat, pick the other names, if applied.

At the second round we were throwing 2 four-sided dice so that everyone could play once more.

Great music by the opening trio plus:
Ilona Schneider – voice
Pep Mula – drums
João Braz – cello
Pau Sola – cello
Teté Leguía – electric bass
Carlos Ródenas – electric bass
Carlo Mezzino – piano
Diego Caicedo – electric guitar
Olivier Jambois – electric guitar
El Pricto – alto sax
Don Malfon – alto sax
Miquel Jordá – sopranino sax
Tuna Pase – voice, flute and electronics

Here’s a record of the 1st and the 2nd Impro Jam @ Nocturna Discordia.

Christer Bothén – bass and contra-bass clarinets

El Pricto – alto sax and clarinet
Miquel Jordá – sopranino sax
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.
