Creative Differences presents this very special concert featuring an incredible all star ensemble in the beautiful performance space, Church and Company.
The Renga Ensemble was convened by clarinetist and composer James for a series of concerts and a recording in April, 2013 in Chicago. The ensemble was handpicked by Falzone, drawing together some of the most diverse and adventurous clarinet and saxophone players working in jazz and improvised music today.
MacArthur Fellow and jazz legend, Ken Vandermark leads many of his own ensembles in addition to past work with groups like the Peter Brötzmann Chicago Tentet and Powerhouse Sound.
Ned Rothenberg has collaborated with Evan Parker, Marc Ribot, Dave Douglas, Thomas Chapin, John Zorn, and many more. Jason Stein has performed with Michael Moore, Jeff Parker, Oscar Noriega, Rudi Mahall, and more. Keefe Jackson has worked with Anthony Coleman, Ab Baars, and Michael Moore, and regularly collaborates with Tim Daisy, Dave Rempis, Jeb Bishop, and other Chicago luminaries.
