Free Jazz Fusion vs. Abstract Percussion and organic Electronics

Shiva Xtet w/guest Mika Pontecorvo -
This project/band takes the Electric Era Miles Davis concepts and weaves it through a set of original tunes. Tony Passarell-sax, Robert Kuhlmann-electric bass, Jim Frink - drums, w/Mika Pontecorvo - guitar.

Broken Whole w/guest Thomas Dimuzio -
Broken Whole is 2 drummers (Mark Pino, Tim Orr) and one electronicist (Mika Pontecorvo) -- our practice is to have a guest artist perform with us, And this evening we have a fine artist and good friend, Thomas Dimuzio, drawing on his electronic work. Our work tends toward the angular abtract expressionist ethos, but with a primal rhythmic aspect settings of subtle textural contrasts..
