Whistler 10 Year — Relax Attack Jazz Series: Jeff Swanson’s Case-fitter

9:30 pm

Whistler 10 Year — Relax Attack Jazz Series: Jeff Swanson’s Case-fitter

This week we celebrate our 10th anniversary! Our cocktail menu will feature a rotating list of our “greatest hits” and we welcome some very special programming to our stage.

Every Tuesday we present Chicago’s top jazz artists in a lively atmosphere, full of cocktail-shaking and spirited conversation. Tonight we celebrate the release of Case-fitter’s new album, available this week on Whistler Records.

A Case-fitter is a craftsman who assembles the different parts of the watch case to house the movement in its exact dimensions. Guitarist Jeff Swanson’s newest project looks at this concept from a musician’s standpoint and allows a wide range of influences to make it’s way into the repertoire. Accompanied by some of Chicago’s finest open-minded musicians, the group explores improvisations and sound collages while piecing together Swanson’s compositions in real-time.
