Now Jazzed 1: Contemporary Jazz and Improvisation Night

February 17, 2017 @ 9:00 pm - 1:00 am


(((A BYOB event, $7 suggested donation)))

Please join us for the first installment of a jazz series focusing on in the moment improv and free jazz sonic manifestations as well as live experimental music related to the jazz paradigm.

Now Jazzed 1 lineup features:

Sorry, No Pike




Eric Leonardson – springboard, Christopher Preissing – percussion box and flute-like devices, Lilianna Wosko – cello

Sorry, No Pike headlines and plays third in helping kick off Now Jazzed sessions pt. 1 as a unifying part of an impressive opening lineup! Come out and witness Chicago culture.



Brianna Tong – vocals, Cam Cunningham – guitar, Zach Upton-Davis – drums,

Khalyle Hagood – bass, and Eric Novak – Sax and Keys

Cordoba closes out the night with a forward thinking nightcap of fusions of style but all jazz related, progressive yet with a musical familiarity that disarms and then embraces you with its soothing complexity.

Steve Slivka – guitar, G.M. Bowles – random instruments, B.A. Rosenblum – saxophone, Alexander Adams – percussion and electronics

Extrapolator takes fragments of jazz and pushes them further down whatever path they were taking at the time, sometimes with meaningless results. But that’s life. And it’s pretty grand!

Ch.I.M.P. 5


The fifth installment of the Chicago Improvising Musicians Pool recorded series will be the first presented to a live audience. The lineup is randomly selected from a spreadsheet listing over 20 Chicago improvising musicians, performing together for the first time and recording for a short period as the fates conspire to hear their collaboration. Come check them open the night around 9pm!
