Darren Johnston
Merriman's Playhouse

ADDRESS

Merriman's Playhouse
401 E. Colfax Ave., Suite 135
South Bend, IN 46617 (574) 310-9977

Set Time(s): 7 PM

Details: Canadian born trumpeter/composer Darren Johnston has been visiting Chicago to perform and record on a regular basis for many years now, initially from the Bay Area, where he lived for twenty-one years, and more recently from his new home town of Brooklyn NY.   Since 2018 this has often meant performing in a quartet including local titans Geof Bradfield, Clark Sommers, and Dana Hall.  

Unlike many of the more avant, purely improvised or free music projects he had participated in before when in town, this quartet, Life In Time, is decidedly a “jazz” project, prone to swinging hard and staying true to predetermined song forms.  That said, they do tend towards the rowdy side of things at times, and are certainly not afraid to bend the ear a little.   

While the official CD release will happen the following night in Chicago, this evening will also be a celebration of not only their new release on Origin Records, and of the ability to play together in front of a live audience once again, marking the first time doing so together since last May. 

And for the first time ever, young drum sensation Neil Hemphill will be covering for the regular drummer, Dana Hall.

featuring: Darren Johnston - trumpet , Geof Bradfield - tenor/soprano sax, bass clarinet , Clark Sommers - bass , Neil Hemphill - drums,
