Quin Kirchner The Other Side of Time
We are so thrilled to present what Peter Margasak has dubbed “The first great jazz record of 2018.”
“The Other Side Of Time” is the debut album from Quin Kirchner, a drummer, composer & sound explorer from Chicago. A consummate sideman, Kirchner has been heard performing & recording with countless musicians in the diverse Chicago music scene including groups led by Jeb Bishop, Greg Ward, Paul Giallorenzo, Bill MacKay, Ryley Walker, Rob Clearfield, Dave Miller, Nick Mazzarella, Nate Lepine, Dave McDonnell, Keefe Jackson and the bands blink., Health&Beauty, NOMO, In Tall Buildings & Wild Belle.
With “The Other Side Of Time,” Kirchner creates a cross-genre, wide-spectrum exploration through his sonic personality. It includes original compositions, spontaneous improvisations, and solo drum pieces alongside interpretations of classics by Sun Ra, Andrew Hill, Charles Mingus, Paul Motian, Phil Cohran & Arthur Verocai. Joining him in his working band is an assemblage of Chicago luminaries – Jason Stein, Nate Lepine, Nick Broste, Matt Ulery & Ben Boye.
Beautiful double LP pressed at Third Man Pressing in Detroit, with Stoughton tip-on gatefold jackets and absolutely stunning artwork from Damon Locks (Eternals, Exploding Star Orchestra, Trenchmouth, etc).
The Other Side Of Time will be released on Astral Spirits on January 26, 2018.
