Lucas Gillan's Many Blessings is a young jazz group that finds a home in the meeting point between tightly-knit composition and wide-open improvisation. A Tucson, AZ native who grew up playing as much punk and hardcore as jazz, Gillan is known both as the program director of Internet radio station and as an active drummer in Chicago. Completing the group's lineup for this date is Quentin Coaxum on trumpet, Jim Schram on tenor sax, and Daniel Thatcher on bass. Gillan's compositions betray the influence of his heroes, Thelonious Monk and Charles Mingus, but have a modern style of their own, incorporating odd time signatures, extended forms, free improvisation and a melodic sensibility informed by Gillan's occasional work as a singer-songwriter.
