TALKING PICTURES celebrates 15 years in a concert of new compositios & improvisations
Led by guitarist/composer Ron Samworth, Talking Pictures is a quartet that synthesizes diverse musical experiences-a ncnfluenceof form and freedom. With Bill Clark Trumpet, Dylan van der Schyff drums and Peggy Lee Cello
