Derrick Michaels - The Great Unfolding

Derrick Michaels is an outstanding musician, with a beautiful concept of sharing this music with so many people to bring us together, and to make us appreciate what we all have within.” - Robert Shahid, host “Masterclass” WEAA

“…Twin Talk expresses both it’s melodic rigor and appetite for adventure.” - DownBeat Magazine

 One Show Only! Two great Bands.

The Great Unfolding
Derrick Michaels - tenor saxophone
John Dierker - tenor saxophone & clarinets
Chris Pumphrey - piano & alto saxophone
Mike Kuhl - drums & percussion

Baltimore-based saxophonist Derrick Michaels leads this quartet of venerable improvisers who create spontaneous music that is at once intimate, synergistic, and expansive. These forays into the unknown ebb and flow, push and pull, soar and plunge - thriving within a cohesive and lush ensemble sound.  

Derrick Michaels is a Baltimore-based tenor saxophonist, composer, concert presenter, educator, and an inexorable force in the creative music community. Boasting a rich, expressive tone and a propensity for dynamic performance, Michaels harnesses the primordial impulse to create — bringing a kaleidoscopic process of compositional architecture to a myriad of egalitarian improvisational ensembles. 

Twin Talk
Dustin Laurenzi - saxophone
Katie Ernst - bass & vocals
Andrew Green - drums

Since forming in 2012 Chicago’s Twin Talk has steadily drifted from the conventions of the saxophone trio. While they are deeply rooted in jazz tradition, they’ve spent their time on the band stage together making their music more elastic, spontaneous, and open, embracing new inspirations without stifling the improvisational heart of their work. All three musicians are active members in the city’s bustling jazz community, each playing in numerous working bands, but they’ve found a true collective voice as Twin Talk. They’ve used live performances as opportunities to stretch—expanding on composed material and ditching set lists in favor of calling tunes on the fly—but on their upcoming album Weaver they’ve pushed themselves further than ever, using the recording studio as a place for experimentation, letting a new batch of compositions develop and take new shapes. As critic Howard Reich wrote recently in the Chicago Tribune, “These musicians listen keenly to one another, and with a sensitivity that only comes from familiarity and trust.”
