Ben Sirois + Avesta Nakhaei - [excerpt from an improvisation]

I'd encountered pianist Avesta Nakhaei just a few nights before in a casual large group excursion. Here, paired with violinist Ben Sirois, he was a bit more "formal" in his approach, and in the frequent points where they gelled this could have been easily taken for a fully composed duet.

[As always, you can check out a full recording of the night over at Audiopollination's bandcamp page. The next Audiopollination night is Tuesday, January 13th, and features Michael Kaler (bass, bouzouki and other stringed instruments) in a series of improvised duets and trios.]
