Recording the Trio and Playing the Brain

Next weekend I'll be recording with my piano trio at Bel Air Studio in Logan Square. The group features Dan Thatcher on bass, and Tim Daisy on drums. HighLife saxophonist Peter Hanson (NYC) will also be joining us for the recording session and subsequent hit at The Hungry Brain on Sunday, November 28th. This group has been playing for about a year and a half now, and mostly performs my original compositions. I was awarded a CAAP Grant from the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs to fund the recording project, which comes along with a healthy spending deadline of December 15th -- so this will be wrapped very quickly. We'll hold the floor for both sets at the Hungry Brain the same night we finish tracking. Below is the invite:
