•  The Celestial Septet

Rova meets up with the Nels Cline Singers, sneaks into a phone booth, and becomes The Celestial Septet. With the great Singers' rhythm section of Devin Hoff and Scott Amendola pushing everyone majestically, the band performed three concerts in the San Francisco Bay Area in May 2008. The results were so exciting and in some ways unexpected that the septet decided to reconvene in November 2008 for one more live concert followed immediately by 2 days in the studio. The results of that recording session (plus one piece recorded live at Yoshi's San Francisco) have been released by New World Records.

The Celestial Septet:
Larry Ochs, Jon Raskin, Steve Adams, Bruce Ackley: saxophones
Nels Cline: guitar
Devin Hoff: bass
Scott Amendola: percussion/electronics
