Goethe Pop Up Kansas City partners with The Blue Room Jazz Club in presenting the German-American jazz collective The Chicago Plan. Celebrating over ten years of collaboration, Berlin saxophonist/composer, Gebhard Ullmann and NYC trombonist/composer Steve Swell join two of Chicago’s finest improvising musicians, Fred Lonberg-Holm, cello/electronics and percussionist Michael Zerang for this new configuration. Building on the strength and ideals of these three cities, the quartet creates enough fireworks to light up the night sky with their brilliant sound imagery. The Chicago Plan thoroughly breaks new ground for what Jazz and New Music ensembles’ approach to creative music should be.
