Excitement from the Chicago scene. Alexander Hawkins (piano), Mike Reed, drums and TOMEKA REID on cello.
Chicago based cellist, composer and educator, Tomeka Reid has been described as “a remarkably versatile player,” (Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune). Equally adept in classical and jazz contexts, Ms. Reid predominantly finds herself in experimental and improvisatory settings and composes for a wide range of instrumentation, from big band to chamber ensemble. Ms. Reid’s music combines her love for groove along with freer concepts.
Please note: Nicole Mitchell is unfortunately unable to participate, and will be replaced by Alexander Hawkins (piano)
There will be one long set starting at 8 p.m. Then you can go downstairs to enjoy a drink at our jam session
