Hamed Sadeghi writes: ‘The structure of the melodies is based on the Persian classical repertoire ‘Radif’ however the solos and collective improvisational segments are based on the structure of classical jazz. The musicians in the band are elegant listeners who communicate constantly. I shared my definition of beauty with them before the rehearsals and we all tried to reflect that in our playing.’
