Dayton native Daniel Bruce brings his Chicago-based jazz group to Blue Note Bistro on Friday, March 30th at 9pm. The group is currently on tour supporting their recent release, Earthshine. The sextet is a powerhouse group of the top improvisers from Chicago and the Midwest. A hallmark of the compositions is the interaction between highly composed music and free improvisation, much of it set to expansive and driving grooves. The members' unique musical identities combine to form a powerful and unmistakable group sound. The ensemble is known for its compositional breadth and interactive and highly energetic performances. From Troy Dostert's 4 star review in All About Jazz, "...a generous, accessible sound with an exploratory edge, Bruce brings a finely-polished technique that is at the same time subtly discontent, searching for new expressions and willing to take some chances along the way."
