“As Mental Imagery is used in Philosophy for hearing with the head or seeing with the mind’s eye, we strive to overcome our dependence from the world external signals (like music sheets, preconceptions or jazz styles) towards perceiving, and hearing inside our minds.."
The band’s compositions and improvisations are envisioned as creative experiments being achieved or re-created within every performance. They begin with minimal material, and within some starting points, they expand their whole music..
The Chicago-based band consists of musicians with several years of exposure within the international Jazz scene- Javier Red (Piano), Gustavo Cortinas (Drums)-, together with highly demanded musicians already very active within several of the best Chicago jazz/free improvisation musicians; Jake Wark (Tenor Sax) and Ben Dillinger (Bass). The band moved away from the commonly jazz/ music paradigms towards an internal process based in hearing, repeating and internalizing their music. The band has been very positively received within the Mid-West jazz scene and will release their first album in 2019.
