"Sublime and mysterious" -- Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery
In the late 1960s, Todd Capp began playing drums in South Side Chicago basements, where free jazz met psychedelia, and the avant-garde learned the blues. His collaborators have included William Parker, Douglas Ewart, Roy Campbell, and Jason Kao Hwang. He continues to explore the shapes of swing, the sonic textures and tangents of the space-time continuum and the human heart.
Todd Capp's Mystery Train is an inter-generational electro-acoustic improvising ensemble, combining musicians whose influences range from free jazz to minimal drone to indie pop, and whose ages range from their 20's to 70's.
