Can anyone help me out with this tune? Has it been recorded?

I heard him play it a half dozen times at Birdland last month: it sounded very much like Chick Corea/Jean Luc Ponty - excellent groove!

They usually played as a big ensemble piece - fiddle, guitars, bass, and perhaps Ludovic on the mouth accordian (I forget what they called that instrument).

Anyhow, beautiful tune - I would appreciate any help here...

BTW, I stole a peak at the set list and that is where I devined the title but it may be something else (setlist shorthand and all that).

best,

    Just a shot in the dark, but is there any chance it is actually Alma Sinti?

    Might be... where could I hear a sample of that?

    Well I just got a reply from the bassist, Brian Torff, which reads:
    Hi Norman,

    Many thanks to you! Alma Santa is brand new- never been recorded.

    Happy holidays,

    Brian

    so I guess that answers that.
