Earshot: Gregg Belisle-Chi + Lil Coop

Gregg Belisle-Chi performs solo, and in duos with vocalist Chelsea Crabtree, mining the relationship between composition and improvisation with dark and rich guitar work. His playing is creatively ambiguous: what seems structured is loose and free, what is improvised is focused and informed.

Combining written material with free improvisation, bassist John Seman leads the Lil Coop group, which includes Stephen Fandrich on piano, Robby Beasley on trumpet, Kate Olson on saxophone, and Tom Zgonc on drums.
