The Young Citizens, a band I play with, has finished a four song demo recording, which you can now find on our Soundcloud page. Performance dates coming soon!
On Thursday April 18, the Artie Black 3 will be playing a set at Cafe Mustache in Logan Square (2313 N Milwaukee Ave). The band includes Artie Black on tenor saxophone, Jeff Swanson on guitar, and me on valve trombone. Music starts at 9:30 PM, and donations will be gladly accepted.
Thanks to Scott McNiece for the mention over at chicagomusic.org!
Here are the recordings from Collider (a group I co-lead with trumpeter Drew Hansen), playing at Jerry’s Sandwiches in Wicker Park, Chicago. The group also features Artie Black on tenor saxophone, Colin Drozdoff on piano, Mike Harmon on bass, and Andrew Green on drums & cymbals.
I wrote Collider, Lost Winter, and Thaw; Drew wrote No. 2, Rain Dance, and Remember Us; and Colin wrote Ray Lewis: Thunder God.
This group plays again on Sunday, March 24 at Uncommon Ground, 1401 W Devon, Chicago at 9 PM.
