Save the date!
Formed in the early 90s as an answer to jazz as a sideman’s game, West by Midwest is back after 25 years of being sidemen.
Actually these guys have had pretty storied careers.
St. Louis native Chris Cheek has been performing throughout the world with musical giants like Charlie Haden, Carla Bley, Steve Swallow, Paul Motian, Brad Mehldau, Kurt Rosenwinkle and Bill Frisell for for 30 years. He’s on countless records and is widely regarded as one of the most badass saxophonists of his generation. Truly.
Columbus Ohio native Dan Rieser has spent the better part of the last 30 years as one of the most musical drummers on the planet no matter what he’s playing. No lie! Just check out his amazing work with Nora Jones, Marcy Playground, Jesse Harris, Chiara Civello, Richard Julian, The Little Willies and Rosanne Cash....
