This unique pairing weaves together years of work together between these four musicians in countless different contexts into a first-time quartet pairing, made possible since each of the artists are in town for the Chicago Jazz Festival. Come kick off the weekend's festivities with this amazing lineup.
Instigation Festival continues with its fourth year bringing Chicago and New Orleans musicians, artists, and dancers together in a cross-medium exploration of the deep historical connections between these two locales. Curated by guitarist Steve Marquette and dancer/choreographer Marie Casimir, tonight's installment brings together eight of the leading music, movement and visual artists from each city for an evening of first time collaborations.
Portland-based vocalist Holland Andrews makes her Elastic debut, spanning the worlds of contemporary classical and improvised music. She'll be opening the night up for trumpeter and longtime Elastic Arts regular Jaimie Branch, who returns to Chicago from her home in Brooklyn to try out a new formation with some old compatriots.
Tonight's bill features two trios. In the first, former NIU saxophone professor Steve Duke is joined by his colleagues Dan DeLorenzo on bass and Danny Faith on cajón (in place of traditional drum set). Bassist Evan Levine's recently recorded working band with Matt Gold and Andrew Green plays second.
Tonight's first band is the debut of a trio of Elastic Arts regulars. The second set features recent transplant Chris Moore, an artist and improviser from Florida. Newly active in Chicago´s improvised music and experimental sound scenes, a multitude of genres across disciplines can influence any given moment in time, ranging from experimental electronics, to post-modern painting, noise, installation art, post-punk, free jazz, film scores, metal, Foley artists, performance art etc. Tonight he'll be joined by three Elastic regulars to debut a new quartet.
Chicago percussionist and composer Tim Daisy performs three works for solo percussion: Space Within Limits (for marimba and percussion) Staklo (for glass instruments) and Construction House (for drum set) For the second set, Daisy will be joined by guitarist Andrew Clinkman for a set of duo improvisations
