7 questions for Luiz Rocha

7 answers for Dave Foxall’s 7 Questions for A Jazz Noise

“The first improvised music I heard in Barcelona came courtesy of Luiz Rocha’s bass clarinet, in a duo with drummer Marko Jelača at Club Cronopios.

Luiz’s two most recent releases encompass his scope nicely: one is “Ten Miles to Bisbee” (Discordian Records), a big band western soundtrack with a twist; the other a spontaneous trio improvisation “Live at MIA” (End Titles) which featured on a Jazz Noise’s ‘Best of 2015’ list in December.”

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.
