$10 suggested donation

Prolific Chicago-based saxophonist Dave Rempis is undertaking a sprawling solo journey around the United States, developing repertoire for his first solo release scheduled on Aerophonic Records this fall, while also working to strengthen the informal networks that connect, inform, and sustain the improvised music scene throughout the U.S. Each concert on the trip will involve a solo set, as well as a collaboration with one or more locally-based musicians in every city he visits. The working title of this ambitious project is "Lattice". For his Lattice set at Rhizome Dave Rempis will be joined by saxophonist Jarrett Gilgore, bassist Luke Stewart, and drummer Ian McColm.
