    Tuesday Jun 16 | Chicago Reader

    On Saturday none other than George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic play at the Venue at Horseshoe Casino , a venue befitting the ersatz spectacle that is the present-day version of the legendary 70s band. I haven't seen Clinton and P-Funk since the mid-2000s, but the few times I saw them play, well, let's just say the performances were inconsistent.

  16. Listen to Jonah Parzen-Johnson's solo saxophone and synthesizer fantasiasRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday Jun 8 | Chicago Reader

    Saxophonist and Chicago native Jonah Parzen-Johnson calls his work "lo-fi experimental folk music for solo baritone saxophone and analog synthesizer," a classification that has met my resistance since I first encountered it. Isn't it enough to say he makes music for saxophone and synthesizer? As heard on his album Remember When Things Were Better Tomorrow , he writes engrossing, accessible melodies that do indeed convey a folky simplicity and directness, but using a variety of extended techniques and interactive synthesizer programs of his own design, those melodic phrases fan out and mutate in countless ways-sometimes decidedly abstract, sometimes florid and tuneful-as he improvises on each composition.
