University of Chicago Residency Featuring Steve Coleman & Guests July 16, 2015

colemanresidency1This is a full performance at Reva & David Logan Center for the Arts at University of Chicago featuring alto saxophonist Steve Coleman, myself on drums and the band. The performance was (and currently is) part of a four week residency which also includes workshops and open rehearsals. Steve’s music is full of counter crossing rhythms, time signatures, key changes, melodic references, multi-layered chords, phrases, and cues. Along with all those components comes his unique style and vision behind the music approaching a rhythmic sense unparalleled and completely original. Notice constant usage of multiple drum chants using long and short beats.
