Adam Shead Quintet performs in celebration of the group's debut album 'Full Cycle, Thread New.' on Shifting Paradigm Records. 'Full Cycle, Thread New.' is a long form composition in three movements by Chicago multi-disciplinary artist Adam Shead. The piece focuses heavily on concepts of reformation, regeneration, non- linear time dynamics, and cyclical history. Throughout the three movements (which features Shead alongside acclaimed Chicago improvised music stalwarts Jeff Kimmel, clarinets; Ishmael Ali, cello/ electronics; Matt Piet, piano; and Andrew Scott Young, double bass.) the quintet effortlessly intertwines a diverse spectrum of aesthetic parameters while maintaining the music’s forward momentum.
