There's a slight Chicago flavour to this episode. Drummer Charles Rumback hooked up with noted New Orleans bassist James Singleton for Rumback's latest recording, Cadillac Turns. In an odd twist of strange, Singleton approached a jet-lagged Rumback in a bar in Sydney Australia and said he had seen Rumback playing in a Chicago bar a few nights earlier. Turns out Rumback had seen Singleton there as well, but didn't approach the bassist who has been a favourite of the drummer since Rumback had seen him as a kid in Kansas City. Guitarist Dan Phillips calls Chicago home where he works with the best of that city's improvisers, but he also calls Thailand home; he teaches guitar at a university there. Meanwhile saxophonist Dave Rempis is a Chicago fixture, working in the creative scene there, as well as running his own label, Aerophonic, which has just released a new album by another of Rempis' trios: Kuzu. All of these Chicago guys have another thing in common: they get around. And so does their music.
