In his new review of KLANG‘s forthcoming studio debut, Tea Music (Allos Documents), AllAboutJazz.com’s Mark Corroto writes, “The music, written by different players, is sly and smart, centered on composition and cleverly precise.”
He continues, “Their collective approach to improvisation is passionate and sharp; [James] Falzone’s orderly clarinet and [Jason] Adasiewicz’s crisp vibraphone travel to another plane. It’s an extraordinary recording from an outstanding quartet.”
A mainstay of Chicago’s creative music scene since 2006, KLANG also features bassist Jason Roebke and drummer Tim Daisy. The group will celebrate the Benny Goodman centennial at the invitation of the Chicago Jazz Festival on September 6th and mark the release of Tea Music at The Hideout on September 23rd before embarking on its first tour in November.
