Ambrose Akinmusire AND KOOL A.D.: Origami Harvest
With special guests Sam Harris, Marcus Gilmore and Mivos Quartet
Co-commissioned with the Ecstatic Music Festival
“...a thoughtful effort to deconstruct and rearrange cultural objects in ways that challenge our deepest assumptions.” – Mother Jones on the music of Kool A.D.
Jazz trumpet virtuoso Ambrose Akinmusire joins his “unfurling lines that confound expectation” (Chicago Tribune) with rapper Kool A.D.’s “social consciousness infused irreverence” (Colorlines) to create a brand new chamber music work co-commissioned by Liquid Music and the Ecstatic Music Festival. Guided by Akinmusire’s “strong aesthetic compass” (The New York Times), this uniquely explorative and expressive world premiere collaboration will feature the “fearless, precise and forward-looking” (The Chicago Reader) Mivos Quartet alongside pianist Sam Harris and drummer Marcus Gilmore.
Tickets: $20 ($15 for Liquid Music subscribers)
