Here’s how it works:
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.

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.

Impro Jam at Soda Acústic – Nocturna Discordia #32 – 1st July 2015

Discordian Records organizes Free Improvisation concerts every Wednesday at Soda and yesterday was the first jam session. The opening concert was a quartet composed by Ada Rave (ts), Nicolas Chientaroli (pn), Vasco Trilla (dr) and me, Luiz Rocha (cl).

Ada y Nico curate the Impro Jam in Amsterdan. Playing and sharing a house with them at a the Free Flow Festival in south Italy and joining some great jams in Portugal at MIA and Desterro made me feel the urge to see such a thing in Barcelona: a meeting place where free improvisers – with different backgrounds, concepts and experience, can share music and communicate.

Simple mechanism: for each performance we threw a 4 sided dice to define if the group was either a solo, a duo, a trio or a quartet; then we picked the names of the musicians out of a hat. The grand finale was El Pricto conducting an improvisation with all the musicians who wanted to join.

Will be repeated.

edit.
A big synchronicity… today (one day later) the pals from Sessions at Robadors are closing the season with a jam.
