HANGING HEARTS is a free-spirited, Chicago-based trio led by saxophonist Chris Weller described by European audiences as "hammering the walls between genres." Bridging the gap between jazz, rock, and experimental music, the band features Cole DeGenova on keyboards and Quin Kirchner on drums.

The band’s latest album Into a Myth (2017, Shifting Paradigm Records) was produced by drummer Dave King and features eight cut-to-the-chase originals referencing various themes from creation myths to cosmic rights of passage.

Since forming in 2012 Chicago’s Twin Talk has steadily drifted from the conventions of the saxophone trio. While reedist Dustin Laurenzi, bassist-singer Katie Ernst, and drummer Andrew Green are deeply rooted in jazz tradition, they’ve spent their time on the band stage together making their music more elastic, spontaneous, and open, embracing new inspirations without stifling the improvisational heart of their work. All three musicians are active members in the city’s bustling jazz community, each playing in numerous working bands, but they’ve found a true collective voice as Twin Talk. They’ve used live performances as opportunities to stretch—expanding on composed material and ditching set lists in favor of calling tunes on the fly—but on their upcoming album Weaver they’ve pushed themselves further than ever, using the recording studio as a place for experimentation, letting a new batch of compositions develop and take new shapes. As critic Howard Reich wrote recently in the Chicago Tribune, “These musicians listen keenly to one another, and with a sensitivity that only comes from familiarity and trust.”
