From Madison’s Surrounded by Reality Music:

An evening featuring two new heavy-hitting trios:

Stirrup (CHI):
Fred Lonberg-Holm, cello
Jason Roebke, bass
Charles Raumbach, drums

Type-Type (Madison/IowaCity):
Luke Polipnick, guitar
Karl McComas-Reichl, bass
Corin Healey, drums

Fred Lonberg-Holm is a cellist/improvisor/composer based in Chicago, known for his work with the Ken Vandermark 5, Friction Brothers, Lightbox Orchestra, Valentine Trio and numerable others. Performing alongside legendary players like Peter Brotzmann and Joe McPhee, he has carved out a distinct sound as a cellist and improvisor, and has earned a spot in the contemporary canon of daring, exploratory music. Stirrup is his new project, which combines the textural ferocity of Friction Brothers with the complex modern jazz sound of Valentine Trio.

The meditative free jazz of Tomas Fujiwara: Chicago Show with Tomeka Reid and Nick Butcher

From the Chicago Reader:

On Tuesday night at the Whistler, great local cellist Tomeka Reid will premiere a promising new trio with Nick Butcher (electronics) and New York drummer Tomas Fujiwara, who was just in town with Indian brass band Red Baraat. (The gig comes in the middle of a recording session for the band.) Earlier this spring, another Reid trio called Hear in Now released its debut, and her cohorts in this new group both drop new albums this month. Butcher celebrates the release of Free Jazz Bitmaps Vol. 1 (Hometapes) with a performance and art exhibition at Saki Records on Fri 5/4 from 6-9 PM, and Fujiwara’s excellent New York band the Hook Up releases its second album tomorrow. The Air Is Different (482 Music) features a killer band—guitarist Mary Halvorson, bassist Trevor Dunn, tenor saxophonist Brian Settles, and trumpeter Jonathan Finlayson—that pushes and pulls the drummer’s lovely, episodic compositions with high-level improvisation.
