CHICAGO: Wolter Wierbos is one of the most important musicians to emerge from the fertile Amsterdam improvised music scene.  A longterm member of Misha Mengelberg’s ICP Orchestra, Wierbos has performed in disparate contexts with everyone from Harry Miller and Theo Loevendie to Sonic Youth to Maarten Altena.  A trombonist of astonishing technique and sensitivity, he will play a short set (half-hour) of unaccompanied solos against a backdrop of CvsD’s current exhibition, which features collages by James Garrett Faulkner and paintings by Thomas H. Kapsalis.  In a review last week in the Chicago Tribune:  Kapsalis is one of the city’s most inspiring painters of any persuasion, and the opportunity of seeing more of him should always be taken.
