The Chicago Improvising Musicians' Pool back in its 4th installments, a nearly monthly series of Chicago musicians i have met over the years. the pool is at 23 members, so i am able to sit out the previous month's lineup and then reinstall them into the pool after a one month hiatus (this does not apply to myself as the 24th member, I serve as the fill in on whatever instrument makes sense at the time).
each month's lineup (I do take some month's off, i didn't do it in Feb and barely squeezed in March's) is determined by 4d20 and a spreadsheet. whatever lineup happens, happens. so far, 3 out of the 4 month's one musician would have something come up, so I have played on most of them (the one I didn't I created graphic scores for).
you can hear the previous month's ChIMP's at https://chicagoimp.bandcamp.com
Consider this weekly beats entry a sneak preview of the next album which is the most expansive one! a really great drum teacher and Chicago/Memphis drummer Michael Tooles was rolled this time, who made the lineup gel quickly. a chicago DJ and percussion players Erick Hampton was also rolled, and he played Korg Wavedrum on this. Painter, pianist, and guitarist/noise maker Larry Roberts was the last roll, while the other performer had to cancel and I sat in on acoustic electric rhythm guitar (and later bass as well).
recorded only using a stereo room mic, a dynamic mic, and a condenser mic in painter Larry Roberts studio
