Sponsors for this concert are KSCL, the Centenary Activities Board and minicine? Show will start promptly at 3:30pm… FREE!

From ALL ABOUT JAZZ — “Percussionist Chad Taylor and cornet player Rob Mazurek are the Chicago Underground Duo. Since the Chicago Underground collective expands or contracts with each project, they’re also two-thirds of the Chicago Underground Trio and half of the Chicago Underground Quartet. Born in the 1990’s out of the fertile Chicago improv scene, the group has, in its various permutations, produced a consistently excellent body of recorded music that mixes large amounts of improvisation with electronica, sampling, and a vast assortment of world music influences that are always organically absorbed— never self-consciously imitated.”
