10 PM : GERRIT HATCHER GROUP

Working with some of the Chicago musicians who have inspired him most, Gerrit Hatcher presents a new group and a set of pieces for improvisors. Hatcher’s pieces for this group nod to the unabashed formalism of repertoire that defined many great bands of the free jazz era, layering rough-hewn themes with dense textures, and loose motifs.

 

 

This concert is made possible through the generous support of Pro Helvetia.
