It just so happened that Mike Savino was playing at SATELLA last night, which was right next door to my gig at KAVEHAZ. So we finally got to put face to typeface and have a beer, which was great. Mike was playing with a Turkish/Arabic ensemble (wood flute, oud, dumbek/trap kit and Upright) and was playing nice pizz and arco and sounding great. the La Scala sounded really round and full and had nice definition throughout the room (I stood in about 3 different places). Mike's a real nice cat, anybody gets a chance to fall by any of his gigs to Hi should take the opportunity.
