Thursday April 21 – Silent Tongues: Jazz improvisation

Silent Tongues is a six-piece jazz ensemble based in Hyde Park, greatly inspired by the past and current innovations of Chicago free and avant-garde jazz, such as the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians. The group has striven to explore collective improvisation, conversations in sound, unfamiliar tones, and unique takes on well-known standards. Silent Tongues has received invaluable mentoring from South Side multi-instrumentalist and composer Mwata Bowden, and look to carry on the tradition of unique jazz music handed down by Bowden and his contemporaries.
