The Liudas Mockunas Quartet from Lithuania will be performing as part of the Umbrella Music Festival: European Jazz Meets Chicago.
Liudas Mockunas Quartet – Lithuania
6pm, Claudia Cassidy Theater
Saxophonist, clarinetist and composer Liudas Mockunas is among the most remarkable Lithuanian jazzmen of the younger generation, an exponent of modern jazz and free avantgarde. In his music he erases boundaries between jazz and contemporary academic music. Fascinated by the origins of sound and possibilities of the overtones, he has developed an original reed performance style, saturated with multiphonics technique.
Admission is free.
Location: Chicago Cultural Center (78 E. Washington Street; phone: 312-744-6630)
