Mike Reed's compositions for Flesh & Bone are both deeply personal and brimming with hope. They represent his expressions of feeling about social unrest, racism and resurgent nationalism. On his eponymous album, the Chicago-based musician recollects harrowing memories of a confrontation with far-right protesters on a train journey with his band through Eastern Europe. For this project, his four-piece band has been expanded to include a cornet player and a bass clarinetist. Poet and performer Marvin Tate plays an important role on the album as well as on stage, where dramatic tales come together with music and moving images.

As a drummer, composer and founder of the Constellation club and the influential Pitchfork Music Festival, Mike Reed is a key figure in the Chicago music scene, where he engages in regular collaborations with a variety of young musicians as well as with veterans such as Roscoe Mitchell and Wadada Leo Smith. His relationship with Amsterdam is very personal, owing to his Indonesian-Dutch ancestry.

Personnel: Greg Ward: alto saxophone, Tim Haldeman: tenor saxophone, Ben LaMar Gay: cornet, Jason Stein: bass clarinet, Marvin Tate spoken word, Jason Roebke bass, Mike Reed drums, Kim Alpert video
Special guests: Marta Warelis piano, Joost Buis trombone
