    Geof Bradfield takes inspiration from Chicago comedy culture and French composer Olivier Messiaen on his latest project
    In his typical fashion, reedist, composer, and bandleader Geof Bradfield deployed a veritable notebook of conceptual conceits when writing and formulating his new album Yes, and . . . Music for Nine Improvisers (Delmark).

Fingerstyle guitar virtuoso Sarah Louise’s new Deeper Woods is a love letter to the natural world

Wed 6/27, 8:30 PM, Constellation, 3111 N. Western, $15, 18+

    Fingerstyle guitar virtuoso Sarah Louise's new Deeper Woods is a love letter to the natural world
    Fingerstyle guitar is a peculiar thing-it's a practice that often sucks its practitioners into a rabbit hole at the expense of other approaches. That's certainly not the case with Sarah Louise (née Sarah Louise Henson), the North Carolinian who made her mark with a couple of dazzling solo instrumental albums before demonstrating a larger sonic palette with her Appalachian-flavored folk duo House & Land.

The neon-lit bar at Lawrence and Broadway, now a legendary jazz club, has been around for 107 years—and has more stories than any tavern in town. Here are a few from the past three decades.

    Pianist Matt Piet reinforces his vitality and versatility on City in a Garden
    Pianist Matt Piet is a Palos Park native who jumped into the local improvised music scene in 2014 when he returned home after finishing his studies at Boston's Berklee School of Music.

A Hawk and a Hacksaw embrace a darker, muted sound on their first new album in five years

    A Hawk and a Hacksaw embrace a darker, muted sound on their first new album in five years
    Forest Bathing (LM Duplication) is the first album by Hawk and a Hacksaw, the Albuquerque duo of Jeremy Barnes and Heather Trost, in five years. Since releasing 2013's You Have Already Gone to the Other World -a project inspired by Soviet-era director Sergei Paradjanov's 1964 film Shadows for Forgotten Ancestors-they've become more efficient in adapting the eastern-European and particularly Roma sounds that have provided their key influences for more than a decade.

Now a quartet, Swiss pianist Nik Bartsch’s Ronin’s remains undiminished in its rhythmic focus

    Now a quartet, Swiss pianist Nik Bartsch's Ronin's remains undiminished in its rhythmic focus
    After Ronin, the long-running band of Swiss pianist and composer Nik Bartsch, dropped its 2010 studio album, Llyria (ECM), the group experienced some major personnel shifts. In 2011 six-string bassist Björn Meyer left the group and was replaced by Thomy Jordi, who plays a conventional four-string model.

    Over the past couple years, drummer Chad Taylor has been on fire, contributing to some of my favorite recordings, among them albums by trumpeter Jaimie Branch, bassist Eric Revis, and pianist Mara Rosenbloom. This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who's been paying attention to jazz.
