Elio Wajiya, piano
Micah Collier, bass
Frank Morrison, drums Pre-concert to Ambrose Akinmusire Quintet. Micah Collier brings a new resonance to contemporary jazz while bridging the classic sounds of John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, and Thelonious Monk with the eclectic ease of Robert Glasper to create his unique sound of Jazz Fusion. He expands the understanding of jazz to be inclusive of other genres to create a music that feels good to the soul. One of Chicago’s young and promising bassist, Micah’s artistic love of traditional jazz and funky bass lines helps to create a powerful musical voyage. He is involved with the Jazz Institute of Chicago, Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM) and Hyde Park Jazz Society. He continues to push the musical boundaries; playing with artist such as Marquis Hill, Corey Wilkes, Vincent Davis, Makaya McCraven, Ernest Dawkins, Dee Alexander and Kendrick Scott.
