Start Date/Time: Saturday, March 24, 2018 5:00 PM
    Every weekend, for our 5pm & 7pm timeslots, we will present the 11 East Quintet featuring a steady quartet fronted by trombonist Luke Malewicz and showcasing a different special guest artist each weekend.  The steady quartet will be comprised of:  Luke Malewicz - Trombone, Andrew Lawrence - Piano, Matt Ulery - Bass, Jon Deitemyer - Drums. 

This weeks special guest artist will be saxophonist Alex Beltran whom has been called “a saxophonist of impeccable musicianship” by the Chicago Jazz Magazine. He is a sought after multi-instrumentalist, composer and teacher.

Alex made Chicago his home and quickly became an active member of the local and regional music scenes. Alex’s quintet, Merge, has released two albums of original modern jazz that have received praise from musicians and critics alike.  Dan Healy of Chicago Jazz Magazine says Delays is “both challenging and accessible, this is one of the best new releases of the year”.  

Alex has performed in both large and small venues across the country, under his own name and with musicians such as Jeff Hamilton, Phil Woods, Tim Ries, Ira Sullivan, Luis Bonilla, John Fedchok, Aretha Franklin, The Temptations, and many others.
