Ambrose Akinmusire & Kool A.D. with Mivos Quartet
February 18, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$25
Presented in partnership with Liquid Music
Jazz trumpet virtuoso Ambrose Akinmusire, hailed by PopMatters as “one of the very best musicians in jazz–or any other style of music,” joins post-modern rapper Kool A.D., known for his “social consciousness infused irreverence” (Colorlines), for the premiere of a new chamber work that pushes the boundaries of jazz and hip hop. Guided by Akinmusire’s “strong aesthetic compass” (The New York Times), this uniquely explorative and expressive world premiere collaboration will feature the “fearless, precise and forward-looking” (The Chicago Reader) Mivos Quartet alongside pianist Sam Harris and drummer Marcus Gilmore.
