I’ve been documenting the vibrant and slightly-under-the-radar Chicago jazz scene lately, especially Umbrella Music-related artists. I shot stills and video at Pritzker Pavillion last month, at Mike Reed‘s Loose Assembly performance. The shot above was made during a rehearsal for that show, which featured (left to right) Reed, Tomeka Reid, Joshua Abrams, Roscoe Mitchell, Greg Ward, and Jason Adasiewicz.

Update: Jason Adasiewicz and Mike Reed made the New York Times top pop and jazz list.
