For the Love of Fire and Water

This supergroup assembled by pianist and composer Myra Melford includes Mary Halvorson on guitar, Ingrid Laubrock on saxophone, Tomeka Reid on cello, and Lesley Mok on percussion. 

For The Love of Fire and Water is inspired by the American painter Cy Twombly’s drawings, Gaeta Set (for the Love of Fire & Water). The dynamic music uses provocation and cacophony aside quieter sounds and blank space. The resulting music aligns with Twombly’s organic, elemental ideas that he sought to portray in his artwork. 

Supported by the Logan Center Jazz Forever Fund, a gift of the Revada Foundation and the Harve A. Ferrill Concert Fund. Presented in partnership with Chicago Jazz Magazine, DownBeat, Jazz Institute of Chicago, and WDCB 90.9 FM.

Before the concert, enjoy a free performance by Aaron Kaufman-Levine at Café Logan from 6:00–7:00 PM as part of the Chicago Stage series, presented by the Logan Center and the Jazz Institute of Chicago.
