Ben Lamar Gay at Off Broadway
Chicago cornetist Ben Lamar Gay is one of the city’s most adventurous and boundary-pushing performers with sound that touches upon avant-garde jazz, hip-hop, indie rock, Brazilian traditions, and experimental electronic composition. A member of the AACM (association for the advancement of creative musicians), Gay (who also spent time traveling and living in Brazil) emerged in the 2000s singing and playing a variety of instruments. Most often, he works in the studio, layering his songs with overdubbed parts. For this concert he will lead a four piece group.
