Charlie Kirchen Quartet

Every Sunday, The Whistler and North Coast Brewing team up to present our favorite jazz artists at The Patron Saint of Jazz series.

The Charlie Kirchen Quartet is the latest project from Chicago-based composer/improvisor/bassist/theorist, Charlie Kirchen. Drawing on a sensibility informed by jazz, certain strains of twentieth century classical music, and various folk traditions, Kirchen’s music is focused on finding a balance between a visceral free-improvised idiom and logically rigorous melodic, harmonic, and formal frameworks.

  • Nick Mazzarella – alto saxophone
  • Dave Miller – guitar
  • Charlie Kirchen – bass and ink
  • Devin Drobka – drums
