Every Sunday, The Whistler and North Coast Brewing team up to present our favorite jazz artists at The Patron Saint of Jazz series. This week we welcome an exciting new quartet. Formed in 2017, Windows is a collaborative project between Chicago musicians Will Miller (Whitney), Dustin Laurenzi (Bon Iver, Twin Talk), Lane Beckstrom (Knox Fortune, Juju Exchange), and Matt Carroll (Ohmme, Rooms Trio). The groups improvised approach creates a space unique to the moment blending grooves, sonic textures, and adaptive forms. This month they will record the night of music and their sound up to this point.
