descriptions, reviews, &c.

"The SLD Trio (Shocron,Lamonega, Diaz) is an exciting and adventurous group of young musicians from Buenos Aires. The Argentinian capital is not a city that is exactly known for an extensive free-jazz and improvised music scene; how- ever, there is a dedicated core of artists and musicians in the city... This is a lovely and exciting album from a trio that is just as willing to give as to receive, and ready to synthesize the familiar with the unknown. On Tensegridad , these three strong, empathetic musicians are flexing their creative mus- cles, working hard together to share their excitement in making music, and giving back the community that they have received as much from."-Paul Acquaro, liner notes
