Georg Graewe Monday, October 27, Chapel Performance Space
A wonderful solo piano performance, engaging and transporting. German pianist Georg Graewe returned once again to the Earshot Jazz Festival for a thrilling solo recital. One of the avant-garde’s leading lights, Graewe has in recent years found himself equally comfortable performing as part of the vibrant Chicago scene, as he does at home in Cologne. Known for his unique blending of jazz, classical, and improvised music, Graewe’s solo efforts are complex and wholly-compelling affairs. He has performed and recorded with Anthony Braxton, Barry Guy, Mats Gustafsson, Dave Douglas, Frank Gratkowski, Paul Lovens, Marilyn Crispell, and Evan Parker, among others, he and also runs his own record label, Random Acoustics.
