Harrison Bankhead Quartet

HARRISON BANKHEAD QUARTET

Ed Wilkerson, Jr., Mars Williams, Avreeayl Ra.

Thursday, March 28, 8PM, Bezanson Recital Hall

The Chicago jazz bassist Harrison Bankhead combines an appreciation for musical challenges, with a journeyman’s ability to fit in an array of styles from straight-ahead to free jazz, flamenco to classical, gospel to soul. “Harrison Bankhead has been about as ubiquitous on the local scene as a jazz musician can be,” writes Peter Margasak. “Over the past couple decades he’s amassed a discography that includes dozens of credits, backing countless Chicago heavies—Roscoe Mitchell, Fred Anderson, Muhal Richard Abrams, Malachi Thompson—and serving as a key member in groups like 8 Bold Souls, Indigo Trio, Frequency, and Witches & Devils. He’s the kind of selfless musician who makes just about everyone he plays with sound better.”
