Set Time(s): 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 while 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.   

This concert follows their April 30th CD release show in Chicago, a celebration of both their new release on Origin Records, and of the ability to play together in front of a live audience once again.  Let the celebrations continue!

For this show, young drum sensation Neil Hemphill will be covering for their regular drummer, Dana Hall.


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