Artist: Jooklo Duo with Colin Fisher
Songs: [two excerpts]
Recorded at Ratio (Burn Down The Capital Presents), June 13, 2016.
Virginia Genta and David Vanzan have been playing together for more than a decade, ranging outward from their native Italy. For this local performance they were matched with Colin Fisher. He mostly stuck to sax for this outing (though there was an interesting side-excursion on the rack of piano strings that occupies the back corner of Ratio's stage area). Similarly, Vanzan held down behind the drum kit while Genta ranged from additional percussion to flutes and melodica to soprano sax. She also started and ended the set at the piano, providing a rolling tapestry for Fisher to emboss. With their sonic range and will to explore, this felt a bit like a night with some other city's version of Not The Wind, Not The Flag — so it felt quite right that in the spirit of cultural exchange they got to spend the evening with half of our city's version.
