Multi-reedist and pianist Ari Brown is a dynamic and important member of the Chicago avant-garde jazz scene and his technique and traditional jazz chops are highly expressive across his instruments. Brown has performed all over the world, touring with Elvin Jones, and working with musicians ranging from McCoy Tyner and Don Patterson to Sonny Stitt, Lester Bowie, Bobby Watson, and Anthony Braxton. He has been part of Kahil El’Zabar’s Ritual Trio and is the go-to saxophonist for Orbert Davis’s Chicago Jazz Philharmonic. Along with Brown, the quintet features Kirk Brown (piano), Yosef Ben Israel (bass), Avreeayl Ra (drums), and Dr. Cuz (percussion).
