Fri 2/16 and Sat 2/17, 8:30 PM, Constellation, 3111 N. Western, $18, $15 in advance, 18+

    Scandinavia's powerful Atomic settle into life with drummer Hans Hulbækmo and find new energy
    On last year's Six Easy Pieces (Odin), the long-running Scandinavian freebop quintet Atomic truly settled into life with drummer Hans Hulbækmo, who replaced founding percussionist Paal Nilssen-Love in 2014. As anyone who's ever experienced the volcanic, shape-shifting work of Nilssen-Love can imagine, he left some massive shoes to fill.

    Drummer Tom Rainey's trio with guitarist Mary Halvorson and saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock makes improvised music with an uncanny tune-like sensibility
    I had listened to Hotel Grief (Intakt) several times before I noticed that leader and drummer Tom Rainey, guitarist Mary Halvorson, and saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock were credited for improvising all five pieces when the recording was made live at New York's Cornelia Street Café in April 2014.

***FOUND*** Small tan male dog- possibly a chihuahua mix- found 1/15 early morning around 12am in Lincoln Square on the corner of Lincoln and Montrose in Chicago. Was wandering and looked cold with no owner in sight. Such a sweet boy- ran straight to me when approached. Was shaking and cold, so my husband and I warmed him up and took him to Medvet on Belmont/Clybourn. We live in Aurora so did not want to take him too far away from where we found him. No collar or microchip. He looks well fed and is so friendly, obedient, and sweet- he must have an owner/family out there who is missing him! Medvet will keep him 2-3 days and then he could be sent to Chicago Animal Control. Please contact Medvet @ 3123 N Clybourn (the emergency vet- not the cancer center) 773-281-7110 or reply to this post.

    Two improvised saxophone-drum duos show that age is nothing but a number on the Chicago jazz scene
    These two sax-percussion duos represent several generations in Chicago improvised music-saxophonist Gerrit Hatcher is 26, while drummer Steve Hunt is 63-but all the musicians share an exploratory curiosity, and both pairs engage in fascinating modes of communication.
