Ken Filiano, bassist and Anders Nilsson, guitar

Bassist Ken Filiano and guitarist Anders Nilsson first met in 2000 at a jam session in New York City. Ever since a musical and personal friendship has been forged based upon trust and intuition. This intuitive bond comes in handy when they embark into the magic of in-the-moment improvisation or dissecting composed structures. They treat music as a rollercoaster of dynamic expression over-riding stylistic constraints, weaving in and out of free improvisations, original compositions, and perhaps a standard or two with a sense of drama, seamlessness and humor. Over the years they have performed numerous concerts, both in the US and Europe, as joint members of several groups – with Fulminate Trio (together with percussionist Michael Evans), Fay Victor Ensemble, Anders Nilsson's AORTA Ensemble, with California poet Bonnie Barnett, and occasionally as a duo. This San Diego performance marks their first appearance together on the west coast.
