Will Schmid Quartet
August 7, 2017 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm
$5 admission at the door. Doors open 15 minutes before music starts.
The Will Schmid Quartet is a collaboration between like-minded improvisers bassist Charlie Lincoln, pianist Patrick Adkins and drummer Edmund Catlin. The Quartet finds Schmid at his most abstract and subtle, experimenting with time, texture, and form as much as melody and rhythm. The quartet hopes to provide a dynamic listening experience through modern original compositions by all three members, and those by Jakob Bro, Bill Frisell, and others.
