Jazz Record Art Collective Wednesday August 20, 2014
Jazz Record Art Collective is a monthly series providing local musicians and visual artists alike an opportunity to collaborate and pay homage to iconic Jazz artists.
JRAC occurs the third Wednesday every month at the Fulton Street Collective, located at 2000 West Fulton Street. Each month a new lineup of jazz musicians perform a "classic" or "iconic" jazz album in its entirety and a featured painter opens their work. The artists will also do a live painting of the band performing to be auctioned off at the end of the performance.
August’s edition will be the Victor Garcia Quintet performing Clifford Brown’s Study In Brown, with showcased art and live painting by Ben Salus.
Clifford Brown’s short-lived recording career produced a wealth of influential work and his death remains one of the true tragedies of the jazz world. Brown, whose life was cut short from a car accident at the age of 25, worked as a sideman with Art Blakey, Sarah Vaughn and Sonny Rollins, but his collaboration with Max Roach made a massive impact on the hard-bob style.
The Clifford Brown & Max Roach Quintet made immense strides in inventiveness and boisterous creativity, and is considered one of the great influences of the hard bop era. Study in Brown, released in 1955, produced two standards and exhibits the Roach/Brown instrumental union at its peak.
Victor Garcia Quintet is: Victor Garcia – Trumpet Rocky Yera – Sax Stuart Mindeman – Keys Josh Ramos – Bass Xavier Breaker – Drums
"Ben Salus’ style can best be described as mixed media collage painting. He has been focusing on this technique for nearly a decade. He does not use borrowed images; in other words a photo is one he has taken and a drawing is one he created. The layering methods end when the collage does not appear to be stuck on. Although some images are left to pop out, the process strives to blend rhythms and temperatures. The subject matter includes family, travel, nature, music and all things urban. The art reflects the belief that we are complex beautiful individuals who reflect our entire history through all of our actions."

The Chicago Artery has been on a bit of a hiatus. We've been restructuring and looking at what's next. Time for Ali and I to get back in the saddle, and initiate affordable (and/or free) community art programming.
Our first event in months is at Fulton Street Collective, on August 23rd, from 2-5pm. That's a Saturday this go-round!
With love and abundant creativity, we request your attendance for S.T.E.W. - a Spontaneous Traveling Experimental Workshop. All supplies, and frosty mimosas will be provided. (There's a suggested $10 donation.)
Come discover your own "recipe" for art and collaboration at S.T.E.W. (We're actually toying with the idea of serving stew and beer. Maybe when it gets cooler out. For now, lazy midday mimosas and fun are on the menu!)
This is a great date, and family friendly event! We look forward to any questions or comments you may have.
