For episode 7, we are tackling the amazing 2011 Terrence Malick film, A Tree Of Life. Guitar slinger Luca Benedetti and Kevin Kendrick (who left his vibraphone at home and brought turntables and synths) came by to help improvise an album while watching the movie. With this trio you really get to hear everyone's musical voices clearly and it doesn't disappoint!
