An evening celebrating two new books by Chicago-based writer, curator, and gallerist John Corbett. Microgroove: Forays into Other Music (Duke University Press) is a collection of essays and interviews covering a wide range of musics including jazz, rock, contemporary classical, folk, and cartoon music, while A Listener’s Guide to Free Improvisation(University of Chicago Press) delves deeply into a single genre, offering a how-to-listen manual for freely improvised music.
Corbett will give short readings from the books, followed by a conversation with artist and music aficionado Terry Winters and a new piece of live music performed by David Grubbs.
