Natalia Mann Trio consider the poetry of music in a new project with bassist DINE DONEFF (aka Kostas Theodorou) from Greece, and percussionist IZZET KIZIL (Istanbul Sessions). We'll be joined by special guest avant garde saxophonist ROBERT REIGLE (Islak Kopek, MIAM).
We had a great show at Alt. jazz club. Thanks to all who came. We played some numbers from Dine Doneff, and also from myself and Izzet Kizil. We finished with Tribute to Okanagan, a 25 minute improvisation inspired by Giacinto Scelsi's Okanagan for harp, percussion and bass, which Robert Reigle introduced us to. That was fun. Thanks to the audience who were important parts of the ensemble! Thanks to Robert who joined us and Dine who came over from Thessaloniki.
