2017 DownBeat Rising Star Eric Revis is one of the most innovative and in-demand bassists of his generation. Working with Branford Marsalis’s hard-hitting quartet since 1997, he’s lent his deep, woody tone and agile melodicism to collaborations with Andrew Cyrille, Darius Jones, and Nasheet Waits, in addition to recording seven brilliant albums as a leader.
Eric will give a one hour workshop about his craft.
You can see Eric perform with his quartet on June 30, 9:30pm at The Ironworks as part of our Innovation Series. The group also features multi-reedist and tireless explorer of advanced methods of improvisation Ken Vandermark (Peter Brötzmann, Hamid Drake), DownBeat rising Star pianist Kris Davis (Tyshawn Sorey, Mary Halvorson) and Chicago Underground co-founding drummer Chad Taylor (Derek Bailey, Marc Ribot).
