“Sunday afternoon, on only their second gig, cellist Tomeka Reid’s quartet sounded like a seasoned band. Chicago’s Reid and bassist Jason Roebke blend well, plucking or bowing. Their East Coast allies are Mary Halvorson on guitar, and bow-tied drummer Tomas Fujiwara who started the set playing a South Side blues shuffle — a hipper way to say “Hello Chicago.” The band’s a great vehicle for Halvorson, playing her warped take on traditional jazz guitar with more of a swing feel than usual.” –Kevin Whitehead
