I've recently joined three bands:
-Carlos Homs' COLOR SMASH
We played a first show at Spectrum in Manhattan a few weeks ago. The setlist included Spanish Key (Miles Davis), some Squarepusher, and original songs and tunes. Joe "The Madman" Albano (reeds) and Jeff Witherell (drums) are part of the band.
-Renato Diz (piano) / Sarpay Ozcagatay (flute) / Tareq Rantisi (percussion)/ LdM (bass)
Another bunch of joyous musicians. Accessible jazz with south american and middle east influences.
