avereywll raA discussion of Chicago’s jazz scene would be empty without stirring Avreeayl Ra into the mix. The Windy City born, raised, and stayed percussionist is a longstanding member of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM) and he has played with the best, including Pharoah Sanders, Amiri Baraka, Fred Anderson, Fontella Bass, Lester Bowie, Oscar Brown, Jr., and Hamid Drake. Ra was the Sun Ra Arkestra drummer from 1984 and 1988 and a member of Frequency, an a-list quartet featuring Nicole Mitchell, Ed Wilkerson, and Harrison Bankhead. Avreeayl will perform at the Sonic Transmissions in a trio with Nick Mazzarella and Ingebrigt Håker Flaten. The trio will have their debut casette tape released on Astral Spirits in time for the festival.
