I loved how they started, the piano strings sounded so great. The bass strings had a similar, pretty, tinny sound. I loved those sounds and was glad the set was sprinkled with some of those as well as many other great sounds.started off playing the kit with his hands.
It was a fabulous set of experimental jazz with a great sax, trombone, piano, bass and drums. The horns certainly didn't hold back in the small room. They wailed at times. They also played quietly at times.
I thoroughly enjoyed the set. It was a Sun night after a holiday, so I opted out of the next set. I'm sure it was great.
Well, well, well, lookie here, "hyperpiano" is the instrument listed. I feel like I hit the jackpot when I found this link. I've been fascinated by this ever since I saw Sylvie Courvoissier for the first time.
