Wanees Zarour Record Release Concert 08/02

Wanees Zarour and ensemble will perform the release concert of his new record, Quarter to Midnight. Zarour combines Middle Eastern forms with avant-garde jazz, Brazilian and classical traditions in this new work to bring elaborate melodies, odd meter rhythms and grooves, improvisation, and strikingly contrasting musical ideas together in what promises to be a stirring concert. Wanees will be joined by an ensemble composed of a group of illustrious Chicago and East Coast musicians, and a string quartet on several numbers.
