Newsbits: Klang / Spy Festival

From Improvised Communications: On September 18th, Chicago-based clarinetist/composer James Falzone‘s six year-old working quartet KLANG, featuring Jason Adasiewicz (vibraphone), Jason Roebke (bass) and Tim Daisy (drums), will release its fourth recording, brooklyn lines … chicago spaces (Allos Documents). This new collection of original Falzone compositions was inspired by the aesthetic stimulation he discovered on the streets of Brooklyn during a week-long residency there last summer.

The Spy Music Festival, which starts tonight in New York, is previewed.
