Dave Rempis Interview

Dave Rempis
Cover of Dave Rempis

From Jazz Right Now:

The innovative and exciting Dave Rempis Percussion Quartet celebrates its 10th anniversary with two concerts this weekend in Chicago at Constellation. From his beginnings on the Chicago scene playing in Ken Vandermark’s band to his leadership of a number of groundbreaking ensembles, Dave Rempis has emerged as a singular voice on alto saxophone in the new millennium. I had the pleasure to interview Mr. Rempis this Spring in order to highlight the leader and the Percussion Quartet’s accomplishments over the past decade.
