Jason Roebke has been a stalwart presence on Chicago’s new jazz and improvised music scenes since 1999, but he’s a Midwesterner since birth. Enamored by Motown sounds, he first picked up a bass as a teen in Kaukauna, Wis., and he worked as Roscoe Mitchell’s transcriber for 18 months before moving to Chicago. Since then, he’s worked with Rob Mazurek, Tony Malaby, Fred Lonberg-Holm and the superb Steve Lacy repertory band The Whammies. Roebke’s latest work as a bandleader, High/Red/Center (Delmark), uses swinging grooves to propel ceaselessly mutating colors and textures from a five-piece, all-star horn section.

Week Three: LORIS in residence @ Bar DeVille, 4/15/14

Quadrangular improvising entity Loris (Tim Stine - guitar, Frank Rosaly - drums, Jeff Greene - bass, James Davis - trumpet) continues informal composition at Bar DeVille this Tuesday night, the third installment of a four-week residency that has thus far featured the group’s principled channeling of Norwegian noise jazz group Supersilent and the minimal melodic meanderings of Don Cherry & Terry Riley.

The band’s linear exploration forages bestially through the improvisatory wild. Stine charges confidently down thorny guitar trails, matching Rosaly’s chaotic wind-carried drum careens, with Davis and Greene trailing the inertia to occasional breakthroughs where they combine and slow down time into melodic moments of fetal suspension.

In just three weeks the group has taken a shared notion, stripped away the common mechanics and strictures of composition and reconstructed a body of sound that is raw, powerful and very much their own. This is the pulse of improvisation in Chicago today.
