The first meeting of Strange Birds was in Cremona Italy in the spring of 2011. After a most fantastic meal and some great wine my friend and alto saxophonist, bass clarinetist Achille Succi and I played two sets of music to a very strangely enthusiastic crowd! Achille and I have since played together in Italy and in the States continuing the Strange Birds concept joined on occasion by a variety of guest players.
The musical conversation between guitar and saxophone is defiantly a challenge, lots of give and take and plenty of extended soloing to say the least! Achilles energy is fantastic I look forward to a recording session with Strange Birds in the near future!
