Mike Lebrun’s Drive Trio

December 11, 2013 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm


Harmonically engaging, rhythmically diverse, and melodically oriented, the Drive Trio focuses on the interactive exploration of original music. Led by rising composer and saxophonist Mike Lebrun (Semi-Finalist of the 2013 Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition and award winning composer), the trio features Chicago’s most in demand and hard-driving drum and bass duo.Clark Sommers(Grammy award winning bassist) with Kurt Elling and one of Chicago’s most in-demand musicians) provides an unshakable rhythmic and harmonic foundation with an ever-present sensitivity to the musical moment. Drummer Jon Deitemyer (of Patricia Barber’s touring ensemble, Matt Ulrey’s Loom, and dozens of other projects), offers complete control across an unmatched dynamic and stylistic range, delighting listeners with his engaging and creative interplay. As a unit, the Drive Trio expands the boundaries of contemporary jazz while remaining true to its rich history, never shying away from incorporating influences ranging from modern pop, classical, funk, electronic, R&B, world music, or classic, swinging jazz.
