Race Card & Nick Mazzarella Quintet

  • Elastic Arts 3429 West Diversey Avenue Chicago, IL, 60647 United States (map)
  • Race Card collides three divergent musical approaches in an improvising format. Josh Berman's cornet playing combines a profound knowledge of jazz idioms, free improvising expertise, and subtle sound-as-sound techniques. Damon Locks tethers his punk-inflected voice to a bottomless well of electronic processes and musical references from his many years as a DJ. Lou Mallozzi dismantles and reconstitutes vinyl and CD sounds from the human, animal, and vegetable kingdoms through a highly gestural approach to live mixing. For the second set, saxophonist Nick Mazzarella brings in his working quintet, a group that works in a very fluid way somewhere in the space between soul jazz and free jazz.
