A prolific and eclectic composer, improvisor and multi-instrumentalist, he has been charting new music territories since the ’70s. For this night he will be playing the guitar and daxophone, and will be joined by the exceptional Marton Maderspach and Robbie Kuster - drums, Luzio Altobelli - accordion, and Julie Houle - tuba and euphonium.
