frank rosalyIf you were looking to start any type of band, Frank Rosaly would be your guy. The Chicago-based percussionist has played worldwide with the integrals, such as Peter Brötzmann, Jeff Parker, Roscoe Mitchell, Thurston Moore, and Louis Moholo. And though he’s mostly known for his contributions to countless avant-garde jazz ensembles and the occasional rock group, Rosaly is also a composer. In 2013, the crucial jazz and blues label Delmark Records released Cicada Music, Rosaly’s first as a bandleader. “More than just a solid timekeeper or freeform propellant, the Chicago resident proves he’s in league with peers like Jason Adasiewicz and Keefe Jackson when it comes to composing,” wrote JazzTimes about the album. During the Sonic Transmissions fest, Frank will be performing his potent solo material, which has been documented on several releases on his own imprint Molk Records as well as the Milwaukee-based Utech Records.
