CHICAGO: One of the key figures in Chicago’s improvised music renaissance, Jeb Bishop has led his own trio and co-led the ensemble Lucky 7s, as well as playing with the Brötzmann Chicago Tentet, the Vandermark 5, and innumerable ad hoc and ongoing groups. This is a rare opportunity to hear Bishop play solo, and he’ll feature a new take on an old piece by fellow ‘bone-man Julian Priester.
This single set of music, is aninformal closing event for the Ted Halkin exhibition, First In/Last Out, which closes the following weekend. If you have already seen Halkin’s exhibit, come see it again and pick up a complimentary 24-page color catalog, now available. This exhibition of Halkin’s work will be reviewed in an upcoming issue of Art in America. Also, don’t miss Katie Kahn’s great work in the gallery’s East Wing.
