Jason Adasiewicz: music in a different kitchen
  • Jason Adasiewicz: music in a different kitchen
For my buck there’s no greater double bill in Chicago than a Wednesday evening at the Hideout, where Soup & Bread is followed by the club’s Immediate Sound jazz series. The biggest problem for me is that there always a couple of hours to kill between the two activities. But this week the two teams are sort of bridging the gap when Soup & Bread goes jazz soup. A bunch of the regular performers and organizers behind the music will show off their improv skills in the kitchen. At press time the soup chefs were Mike Reed, Dave Rempis, Kent Kessler, Nate Lepine, Jason Adasiewicz, and Mitch Cocanig, and a couple of friends. Ryan Hembrey, the club’s sound guru and an excellent bassist, will spin music as people sop up potages. All proceeds will go to Irving Park Community Food Pantry.

Then, at 9:30, the trio of pianist Jim Baker, bassist Joshua Abrams, and drummer Avreeayl Ra will play two sets. Jon Bollo will DJ before, between, and after those sets. You’ll still need to while away a couple of hours after the crock pots go cold and when the music begins, but hopefully it will still be warm enough that you can take in the industrial splendor of the city’s nearby Fleet Management facilities.

Today’s playlist:

Grouper, Cover the Windows and Walls (Root Strata)
Pekka Pohjola, Harakka Bialoipokku (Love)
Don Rendell-Ian Carr Quintet, Live at the Union 1966 (Reel Recordings)
Tita, Tita (Polydor, Japan)
G9 Gipfel, Berlin (Jazzwerkstatt)
