Thurman Barker and Ben LaMar Gay, South Side Suite and Hecky Naw! Angles!

Two generations of Chicago-born composers share an evening to honor the history and future of music experimentation and the city of Chicago itself.

During the weekend of the Chicago Jazz Festival, seasoned percussionist Thurman Barker pays homage to his early days in the city’s jazz scene with South Side Suite and “polymath” cornetist Ben LaMar Gay explores the shapes and sounds of Chicago social dances in Hecky Naw! Angles!, giving audiences a taste of his new dance and video collaboration being developed on the MCA Stage.
