SET 1: DEVIN DROBKA’S BELL DANCE SONGS

Devin Drobka – drums
Chris Weller – saxophone
Mike Bjella – saxophone
Clay Schaub – bass

“Bell Dance Songs brims with such melodic and rhythmic tensions, often evoking dance-like rhythms, as a bell’s ring might, resonating in circular fashion more than articulating step patterns or back beats. This creative activity is very characteristic of Motian, who always defied conventions of the rhythm-maker’s role.” – Kevin Lynch, No Depression

Saxophonist Dustin Laurenzi has made himself known throughout Chicago as a collaborator in some of the city’s most exciting and forward-thinking projects. With “Natural Language”, Laurenzi takes an unexpected approach to his debut recording as a leader, opting for restraint and a quiet confidence that spans the album’s seven tracks.

“Natural Language” will be released on September 9, 2016 on ears&eyes Records.

“Laurenzi plays with a beguiling cool that belies the sophistication and flexibility of his lines” – Peter Margasak, Chicago Reader

“…superbly winning…like listening to a human voice.” – Robert Rodi, Newcity Music
