Chicago native and early AACM member Bill Brimfield has died at age 74.

John Tchicai, who recently passed away, is profiled.

Guitarist Marco Oppediasano is interviewed.

The legendary Archie Shepp is also interviewed.

Thursday, October 18 at 7:30 p.m., at La Maison Française, 4101 Reservoir Road, NW – Washington, DC 20007, THIEFS, featuring Guillermo E Brown, will appear. Collectively led by drummer and vocalist Guillermo E Brown, bassist Keith Witty and saxophonist Christophe Panzani, THIEFS is a grammatically incoherent jazz bastardization. Fully acoustic to fully electronic, THIEFS weaves elements of modern composition and improvisation into a boundary-less foundation of beats.
