Lonberg-Holm's, Fred Fast Citizens, : Gather (Delmark)
Label: Delmark    
Released in: USA    

"Formed in 2002, The Fast Citizens are the Chicago-based sextet of Aram Shelton, Keefe Jackson, Josh Berman, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Anton Hatwich and Frank Rosaly. With a rotating leadership, they have made three records, each featuring a different member. Continuing the exploratory tradition of their first two albums - Jackson's Ready Everyday (Delmark 571) and Shelton's Two Cities (Delmark 590) - Gather augments their jazz, experimental and free improvised vocabulary with an ever expanding set of references ranging from the popular to the esoteric. "Fast Citizens continues to forge its own direction, reaching beyond formulaic conventions to embrace new forms."-All About Jazz
