Available Formats: Vinyl

“…Lonberg-Holm takes the lead for the most part, providing tunefulness enriched with gritty textures…Nick Macri’s bass is the unsung hero of this mix, rubber-banding throughout the low registers in a complementary fashion… Charles Rumback’s contributions are those of a veteran… Picks Up the Thread is a prime example of Chicago’s modern outside jazz. While based in the tradition, these players explore new ground that is both familiar and unfamiliar. Even though they mostly eschew blowouts and unstructured improv, the album is adventurous and a joy for curious ears.” – Avant Music News
