A collective of four Seattle-based improvisers of diverse backgrounds and influences. Guitar innovator Matt Benham employs a custom array of effects to stretch the sonic borders of his instrument. Carol J Levin plays an electrified harp, producing a span unique to that instrument’s pedigree. Kenny Mandell, an award-winning jazz performer and educator, uses reeds, woodwinds and percussion in myriad ways. Scott Schaffer adds strings to the mix and facilitated the recording process. More an improvising framework than a band, Spontanea recorded its first album, Flow, in  2018. Flow is a freewheeling tapestry of quartets, trios, duets and solos linked together in a single narrative.
