A collective of four Seattle-based improvisers of diverse backgrounds and influences.
Matt Benham (guitar, effects), Carol J Levin (electric harp, kalimba, percussion) , Kenny Mandell (woodwinds, percussion) and Scott Schaffer (bass, mandola).

More an improvising framework than a band, Spontanea recorded its first album, Flow, in  2018,  
a freewheeling tapestry of quartets, trios, duets and solos linked together in a single narrative.

A second album is soon to be released in 2020.
