New Voices: Where hot improvisational jazz meets the power of the spoken word: Pasha Coffee House, 3914 St. Elmo Avenue, the third Saturday of each month, 6:30 to 8:30 PM.
Meet The Undoctored Originals. They improvise transition music between speakers and continue improvising during the intermission. Their improvisations show changing rhythm patterns, melodic phrases and real time synergy that takes the audience to new realms. The instrumental interplay with spoken words culminates in an astonishing conclusion.
