DVD: Chicago Underground Trio – Chronicle
Delmark DVD 1573 (2008)
Rob Mazurek & Chad Taylor have been the heart & soul of the Chicago Underground groups for over a decade. Bassist Jason Ajemian makes his debut in the Chicago Underground Trio bringing a wide range of musical influences to the table. “…the trio’s music is never frenetic: it is lapidary in its precision. With painterly splashes of organ and electronics, it casts a nocturnal spectral glow.” –New York Times
Filmmaker Raymond Salvatore Harmon created a live mix of color and images projected during the performance that forms a framework for the visually shifting landscapes of sound and light presented in the film, often verging on the psychedelic.
