Hearts And Minds
Hearts And Minds
Originally from Long Island, New York, Jason Stein is one of the few musicians working today to focus entirely on the bass clarinet as a jazz and improvisational instrument. He studied at Bennington College with Charles Gayle and Milford Graves, and at the University of Michigan with Donald Walden and Ed Sarath. In 2005, Stein relocated to Chicago and has since recorded for such labels as Leo, Delmark, Not Two, Atavistic, 482 Music and Clean Feed. Stein has performed throughout the US and Europe as both a bandleader and sideman and has amassed a discography of over 30 albums.

Hearts and Minds features three integral musicians from Chicago and New York; Jason Stein on bass clarinet, Paul Giallorenzo on synthesizer and electric piano, and Chad Taylor on drums and electronics. The trio's 2016 debut release on the exceptional new label from Austin Texas, Astral Spirits received high critical praise from a number of highly regarded publications including the New York Times and Downbeat Magazine. The band has been called a "bastard organ trio", weaving together various influences from jazz, rock, and noise into an intense, singular expression of contemporary composition and improvisation. John Corbett writes in the liner notes "unusual forces are at play, unique combinatorics, suggesting a confluence of ideas, newly directed teleologies, a turbulent eddy in the natural flow of creative music’s waterway."
Kessel Quartet
Kessel Quartet
Kessel Quartet is a new project from the mind of local guitarist Scott Burton. Featuring Burton on guitar, John Lilley on saxophone, Kevin Eichenberger on bass and CJ Wolfe on drums, the group takes the melodies of jazz guitar legend Barney Kessel and runs them through a blender of modern composition and improvisation practices. By fusing these disparate elements, the band is a simultaneous homage and radical reimagining of the guitar hero’s legacy.
