The professor, originally from Long Island, anti-egomaniac, complaining of "excessive revisionism," which seeks to "psychedelic" and "mystical" in their concerts, and jazz featuring the hit yet when he heard the cool vinyl Miles Davis, In a silent way, comes to Buenos Aires to try his theory of perfect trio, something like a combo of perfect balance between Bill Evans and Art Tatum, accompanied by the bassist and drummer Johannes Weidenmueller Ari Hoenig.

With clinical unpluggeds cycles, outdoors, the classic Jazzología, films about gender, a permanent photo exhibition (Recoleta), the bet of crosses between local and international musicians and the pearl of the night closing jam sessions, the City will be caught by the swing, improvisation and the entelechy of the 12 tones until next Sunday.
