Oscar Jan Hoogland Chicago Project: These Thing Happen

Keefe Jackson - tenor sax
Oscar Jan Hoogland - piano
Joshua Abrams - bass
Mikel Avery - drums

The music of These Things Happen is a commuting between Chicago and Amsterdam, composition and improvisation, sobriety and [uninhibitionlessness], wild playfulness and [purity]. Starting with classics and originals from the Dutch and American jazz traditions, the quartet will digress covering new ground: discover and ignore, grab and release, creating and letting go …


These things happen
This is our music
This is our sonic furniture
This is the room
This chair we can sit on
That table can be beaten
This is our past “Sugar?” “Yes please”
This is the shit
This is hapening
This is
That is
These things happen

SOUND OF THE CITY WORKSHOP
SOUND OF THE CITY WORKSHOP
The SOUND OF THE CITY WORKSHOP gives the traditional jam session a modern twist. In place of the traditional house band, each week a new small ensemble will be featured performing original music. The evening focuses on creative improvisation as a way to approach and achieve original composition.

Following the featured ensemble’s set, the workshop opens things up to a larger pool of musicians, inviting improvisational performance from creative practitioners working within the spectrum of jazz and improvised music.

All improvisers - instrumentalists and vocalists - are welcome. The workshop is open to experienced musicians, as well as those excited to explore improvisation for the first time.

Musicians who’d like to be included need to arrive by 9:30pm. The workshop stresses that musicians come to listen first before taking part in playing. The whole evening is FREE and open to the public.
