Matt Ulery feat. eighth blackbird at Chicago’s Millennium Park
Thursday, August 16th

From film-inspired orchestral composition to small group jazz to Eastern European folk music, bassist/composer Matt Ulery moves beyond notions of jazz-classical fusion to speak with a distinctive voice unburdened by genre limitations. Featuring members of eighth blackbird and vocalist Grazyna Auguscik, pianist Rob Clearfield, drummer Michael Caskey, violinist Zach Brock and others.

All concerts open with a short set performed by young, aspiring musicians from Chicago-area high schools through the Jazz Institute of Chicago’s Jazz Links Students Ensembles program.

Post-Turkey Post

Happy friday, everyone. If you read our site regularly, you probably received an email blast this morning. If not, we announced our Holiday Bundles earlier today. There are some pretty sweet deals on every album in our catalog over at the store. Also, a pretty killer Subscriber package for new people wanting to overload their hard drive with tunage and support what we do.

More specials coming next week. Happy post-Turkey day.

Wrapping up the preorder…

With so much happening here, where do I begin.  The beginning, I guess…

First and foremost, the SPIRIT MOVES Preorder ends at 11:59pm EST tomorrow.  That means that you have until then to get in on those special offers we’ve been talking about — the free live set from the upcoming Brass Ecstasy Jazz Standard shows this week, the signed copies (almost sold out), etc.  And remember, Subscribers get a 2nd live set free.  Click here to get to the Preorder page.

Second, as mentioned, Brass Ecstasy is kicking off the Spirit Moves Tour this Thursday at Jazz Standard.  Then on to DC, Ottawa, and Chicago, followed by the European leg of the tour.  Click here for all those dates (and there are a lot of them!).

Another show to hit up this week in NYC — Michael Bates’ Outside Sources (with Chris Speed) at The Stone, Tuesday the 16th.  Downbeat is at 10PM.  More info here.

Lastly, our Mixtape Contest is rocking.  Thanks to all who have submitted so far.  We’ll announce the first of 3 winners later this week.
