JAMES SINGLETON CHICAGO QUARTET

Thu February 10 @ 8:00 pm

New Orleans is a city steeped in tradition, but a big part of this culture is constant evolution via improvisation and innovation. That may be why James Singleton is one of the busiest bassists in town. He’s been a mainstay of the scene for over four decades by playing a myriad of styles with tons of music legends: John Scofield, Ellis Marsalis, Stanton Moore, Chet Baker, and John Medeski, just to name a few. Beyond a standard sideman, Singleton is an accomplished composer and improviser that continues to hone in on his sound by experimentation. 

Singleton is perhaps best known as a founding member of the seminal New Orleans modern jazz group Astral Project, as well as more recent experimental outfit Nolatet with vibraphonist Mike Dillon, pianist Brian Haas and Astral Project drummer Johnny Vidacovich. 

Tonight, he presents a collaboration with some visiting midwest players, hand-picked by Singleton from the cutting edge of Chicago’s free-jazz scene, featuring
James Singleton – bass, trumpet, efx 
Charles Rumback – drums 
Jim Baker – piano 
Dave Rempis – saxophones 
Shows at 8pm & 10pm. 
Doors at 7:00pm & 9:30pm.
