ERIC REVIS Quartet with KEN VANDERMARK, KRIS DAVIS, CHAD TAYLOR.
On his newest album as a leader, Sing Me Some Cry (Clean Feed), he goes a long way beyond anything he's achieved before. Sing follows 2013's Parallax (Clean Feed), his first recorded pairing with multi-reed player and MacArthur Fellow Ken Vandermark, the Chicago experimental scion. It shows Revis’s astoundingly flexible range with a huge grounded sound. Vandermark returns to this session in a quartet with pianist Kris Davis (Revis’s frequent trio partner on a handful of recorded dates with drummer Andrew Cyrille), and a former Chicagoan on drums, Chad Taylor, whom the bassist employed on his acclaimed 2014 quartet session In Memory of Things Yet Seen.  More...

During the evening attendees get to roam among inventors and musicians while experiencing sound producing gear, computers, instruments and inventors with their various different configurations of “gear”--everything from oscillators and electronics, to planks of wood with strings attached. All attendees get to ask questions, make sound and experience how the instruments work, in an environment that demystifies technology while inspiring creativity.
