Downtown Sound: Active Child + Matt Ulery's In The Ivory featuring eight blackbird

LA-based multi-instrumentalist Patrick Grossi, aka Active Child, will present the Chicago live premiere of his highly anticipated sophomore full-length album, Mercy. Known for his porcelain falsetto and cascading harp, Active Child’s live show shimmers with lush arrangements, stunning visuals and a talented team of backing musicians. Chicago bassist-composer Matt Ulery creates resplendent, lyrical, transportive chamber-jazz music. Ulery has forged a unique signature sound, with three-time Grammy-winning ensemble eighth blackbird plus a core rhythm team: UIlery, double bass and voice; Rob Clearfield, piano, Jon Deitemyer, drums; vocalist Grazyna Auguscik; Aurelien Pederzoli, violin; and Dominic Johnson, viola.
