The entire set from July was recorded and after Friday’s show we’ll certainly have enough material for our first CD!  Come, be a part of our album!  Free improvisation is best served live.  With an audience, the improvisers have a need to communicate a statement cohesively as a trio to those present ~ It is You who we are speaking to ~ join us at AFA for another evening of free jazz & compositions!
