A new quartet with the mission to transcribe and perform music created in Chicago by musicians of the past 15 years. The project aims to add new repertoire at each performance as well as an online .pdf of sheet music on the Constellation Website. The ongoing project will create an archive of current Chicago music made under the Jazz and Improvised music moniker.

The project essentially hopes to create a Chicago "real book" to document the ongoing development of Chicago music.
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.
