I had the awesome opportunity to attend the Chicago Jazz String Summit on Saturday!

My impressions:

  • Check out the sweet gear for the festival! Digging the violin scroll posing in front of Chicago!
  • I discovered a new favorite sound: cello with a loop pedal, distortion, extended techniques, french singing, all combined also known as Helen Gillet. Her cd, Dusk in Wallonia, was sold at at the event but I plan to order it!
  • I get an early listen to Hearn In Now’s new cd “Not Living in Fear,” and I got to listen to them playing LIVE!

It was a great way to reconnect with music that I love. I hope this event happens again in 2018!
