Zach Brock / Matt Ulery / Jon Deitemyer (Chicago)
“I called the great French violinist Jean-Luc Ponty and I said ‘So, who’s the new cat? Who’s got the stuff? And he said Zach Brock.” —Stanley Clarke
“This is music of brisk intelligence and an almost off-putting abundance of composure… with frictionless access to great chunks of classical post-minimalism, atmospheric indie-rock and harmonically astute post-bop.”—New York Times
“Jon Deitemyer is the drummer everybody wants right now…” —Patricia Barber
Opening Set by Tim Haldeman Trio (Ann Arbor)
