The Nick Mazzarella Meridian Trio +1
Start Date/Time: Monday, December 18, 2017 5:00 PM
    Meridian Trio features Chicago-based musicians Nick Mazzarella (alto saxophone), Matt Ulery (bass) and Jeremy Cunningham (drums). Mazzarella, the group's leader and composer, formed the ensemble in 2014 to explore the intersection of modern jazz with the American avant-garde, and to develop a repertoire of original material. His compositions for the trio synthesize elements of the blues and modalism with free improvisation, and often employ memorable melodic phrases, as well as swinging grooves and other cyclical rhythmic structures. The debut album by Meridian Trio, entitled Triangulum, was released by noted Portuguese new music label Clean Feed Records in May 2017.

For its appearances at Andy's this summer, Meridian Trio will be joined by special guest Tim Stine, a frequent collaborator of the ensmble's core members, and one of the most creative and original guitarists working in Chicago's vibrant jazz and improvised music scenes.

Showtimes:  5pm & 7pm
