Nicole Mitchell and Jeff Parker
Thursday, October 30, 2008Bezanson Recital Hall 8:00 pm
The Solo & Duos Series continues with two great young masters from Chicago: flutist Nicole Mitchell and guitarist Jeff Parker. Nicole Mitchell is a compelling improviser of wit, determination, positivity, and tremendous talent, writes Peter Margasak in the Chicago Reader, on her way to becoming one of the greatest living flutists in jazz. Parker is a widely-traveled jazz guitarist, equally at home in soul-jazz, hard-bop, dub, hip-hop, electronic and free jazz. If you went looking for a poster-child for Chicago's multidirectional, cross-pollinating, interstylistic music scene, writes John Corbett, you couldn't find a better one than Jeff Parker.
