Ken Thomson Sextet with Matt Ulery’s “By a Little Light”
Groundbreaking chamber jazz in the hands of Brooklyn-based saxophonist/composer Ken Thomson and Chicago’s bassist/composer Matt Ulery. They meet for the first time in 2 large-scale groups merging modern composition and jazz. The night celebrates Bang on a Can All-Star, creator of Slow/Fast and co-leader of Gutbucket, Ken Thomson’s new record with an incredible cast of worldwide touring musicians and bandleaders in their own right. “By a Little Light” is a rare appearance of this project that Matt Ulery created and toured with new music ensemble Eighth Blackbird. For this night only, this group will feature Nick Photinos and Yvonne Lam from Eighth Blackbird, Chicago-based but internationally touring contemporary music percussionist Doug Perkins (John Luther Adams, Chicago Symphony, etc), and Ken Thomson and Anna Webber from the sextet alongside Matt’s brilliant trio.
