Dave Rempis (Chicago)
Prolific Chicago based saxophonist Dave Rempis (Rempis Percussion Quartet, Ballister, The
Engines, Vandermark Five) makes his first Madison appearance in five years, performing solo,
and in collaboration with Madison based improvising trio Stray Passage. This special night is part
of a larger series of solo performances Rempis is undertaking throughout North America in 2017,
with the goal of building a unique approach to solo saxophone that will be documented for release
on his Aerophonic records imprint next fall, while also working to strengthen the informal networks
that connect, inform, and sustain the improvised music scene worldwide.
Brennan Connors & Stray Passage (Madison)
Experimental Jazz Trio Brennan Connors & Stray Passage has been performing in Madison for
over three years, exciting listeners with their range of sonic capabilities. Their improvised music is
directly linked to the atmosphere in the room and energy of the audience. Attendees will
experience a jazz trio that embraces free and structured improvisation, original compositions,
groove based experiments, and sound exploration. The breadth of a performance ranges from
focused minimalism to fiery high energy music, all while maintaining a sense of narrative
organization and compelling ensemble interplay.
