I’ll be in Chicago this coming week performing and recording with the Lucky 7s. Lucky 7s is a group that I co-lead with Chicago trombonist Jeb Bishop. Other members of the group are Josh Berman, Keefe Jackson, Jason Adasiewicz, Matthew Golombisky, and Quin Kirchner.
We will be performing new material, as well as stuff from our first CD. We will also spend a couple of days in the studio, recording what should be our next CD.
The performances are:
Wednesday, July 18, 2007 @ The Hideout 1354 W. Wabansia, Chicago
Friday and Saturday, July 20 & 21, 2007 @ The Velvet Lounge 67 E. Cermak Rd. Chicago 9:30 PM
Sunday, July 22, 2007 @ The Hungry Brain 2319 W. Belmont, Chicago
The Hungry Brain gig will have some guest action as well. Dave Rempis and Jason Stein will be with us, and there are some other invitees that I haven’t heard confirmed so I won’t mention their names, but it will be fun. We’ll probably do one set of Lucky 7s material, then a set of improvisations by various combinations of Lucky 7s and guests.
Please join us for any or all of these nights, and be sure to say hello. If you can’t get to Chicago, I am hoping to put a piece or two from each night on the free mp3 section of the Lucky 7s site. I’ll probably cross post them here as well.
