A Kidnap I am awake Wakefulness challenged to move. Sleepless slithering past the tongue with a toss of awakening sugar coated efforts. More dry than juicy.
A solo in 2 parts
Film: Travel
Video mix. Speedy chillies winded in a race covered with Bilbao. A sudden appearance of organic figures mysteriously enters the pallet and speaks a tasteless language.
Music: Twin Peeky Souffle: Darkly roasted and sweetened events, coming to fruition every so often. Complete with flies in the soup & bad dreams, Alfredo serves up this mixed dish best with just a little hint of eggy paranoia.

Do any Troupers remember Justin Hammer -- Karen Bishop-Hammer's amazing son? (Besides you, Davy, of course!) His band is performing next week:
JUSTIN HAMMER BAND (live) at Schuim, the same place Davy played recently.

The Emerging Improvisers Organization, based in Chicago, is a not-for-profit group dedicated to nurturing creativity, experimentation and artistic growth among the city's jazz musicians. Toward this end, we sponsor, organize, and promote live events that showcase local and nationally known talent representing a wide spectrum of jazz styles.

Most prominent of the group's efforts is the Sunday Transmission series held at The Hungry Brain: A Chicago "neighborhood" bar situated at 2319 W Belmont Ave, open every day except Mondays. The Transmission Series happens on Sundays at 10PM
Each week, the series presents jazz artists from Chicago and beyond, reflecting styles that range from improvised folk to free jazz. (Periodically, The Emerging Improvisers Organization stages live performances at other venues in the city.)
