Juli Wood Quintet Performs Hank Mobley’s Workout at Jazz Record Art Collective Wednesday, July 16 at Fulton Street Collective. Showcased Art by Brian Golden and Four of a Kind.
Saxophonist Hank Mobley enjoyed a performing career with over 30 albums as a leader (including 25 on Blue Note Records) and over 50 as a sideman. Unfortunately, his playing career only lasted 17 years, silenced from a lung condition while in his early 40s.
Mobley worked with such jazz pioneers as Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Lee Morgan, Horace Silver and Art Blakey and is renown for being one of the great hard-bop composers with unusual chord changes while allowing members the sovereignty to draw out solos.
“Workout” released in 1961 is his 12 on Blue Note and features performances by Mobley, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, Grant Green and Philly Joe Jones. The album is widely considered a milestone record from the hard-bop era.
Juli Wood Quintet is: Juli Wood – Tenor Sax Alejando Urzagaste – Guitar Tom Vaitsas - Piano Dennis Carroll – Bass Greg Artry - Drums
"Four Of A Kind" is an artists collective founded by four American artists: Paul Branton, Darno Demby, Brian Dovie Golden & David Anthony Geary. These four perspectives and approaches to art making are unique and yet connect and overlap sometimes in unexpected ways. The juxtaposition of differences and commonalities serve as a huge part of both their collective and collaborative endeavors. These for artists strengthen one another not just as artists but also as human beings. As iron sharpens iron; so one person sharpens another.
"The Jazz Record Art Collective," occurs the third Wednesday every month at the Fulton Street Collective, located at 2000 West Fulton Street. Each month, Anderson and Lanasa introduce a new lineup of jazz musicians and painters responding to a different record and musician.
Admission will be a suggested donation of $10.

Letter From the Artist:
In the name of a both a fundraiser and an exhibition of my most recent paintings, I invite you out to the Fulton Street Collective the evening of July 20th.
This summer I have been invited to attend an artist residency in Portugal for the month of August. This will give me an opportunity to create a new body of work sourced from the Portuguese landscape.
I am inviting you to attend this event in support of my goal to cover ground literally by plane from Chicago to Portugal and creatively by paint on canvas.
A suggested donation of 10$ will get you in to the exhibition as well as complimentary punch and small bites. In addition, there will be various raffle prizes including one of my paintings! All of the donations will contribute to my travels expenses to, from and while I am in Portugal.
Can't make it but still want to help? Below is a links to my fundraising page:
