Every Tuesday we present Chicago’s top jazz artists in a lively atmosphere, full of cocktail-shaking and spirited conversation. This month, two established improvisers from different corners of the Chicago music scene come together to form a new and evolving collaboration.
Having played as a duo several times in 2017, drummer Jeremy Cunningham and saxophonist Dave Rempis felt the need to expand this interaction further and to incorporate some of their favorite Chicago improvisers. Each week, they’ll curate a slightly different lineup of their favorite musicians, with the goal of reflecting the many different facets of their musical interaction. As part of the Whistler’s residency program, some of these concerts may be recorded for possible future release.
