Artist Biographies:

"Dave Rempis was born in Wellesley, Massachusetts on March 24th, 1975. He began his musical studies at the age of 8, inspired by a family friend who played clarinet in local Greek bands, and by Zoot, of the Muppets Band, to pick up saxophone. During high school he performed in his town, district, and all-state bands and wind ensembles, as well as in a jazz combo at a local music school.

In 1993, Rempis began a degree in classical saxophone at Northwestern University with Frederick Hemke. Finding this environment stifling, Rempis quickly ditched the music degree to pursue studies in anthropology and ethnomusicology. As part of these studies, he spent a year at the International Centre for African Music and Dance at the University of Ghana, Legon, studying African music and ethnomusicology. He also continued to perform with many different types of groups, ranging from highlife and reggae bands while in Ghana, to jazz, free jazz, funk, and contemporary music ensembles at home. He graduated from Northwestern in 1997.

Upon graduating, Rempis decided to focus on performing, and in March of 1998 at the age of 22 was asked to replace veteran saxophonist Mars Williams in the well-known Chicago jazz outfit The Vandermark Five. This opportunity catapulted him to notoriety as he began to tour regularly throughout the US and Europe playing clubs, concert halls, and festivals on both continents.

During his tenure with The Vandermark Five, Rempis also began to develop the many Chicago-based groups and international collaborations for which he's currently known, including The Rempis Percussion Quartet, The Engines, Ballister, Rempis/Abrams/Ra, Wheelhouse, The Rempis/Rosaly Duo, and The Rempis/Daisy Duo. Many of these groups have been documented on the Okkadisk, 482 Music, Not Two, Clean Feed, Solitaire, and Utech record labels. Past collaborations have included performances with Paul Lytton, Axel Dörner, Peter Brötzmann, Hamid Drake, Steve Swell, John Tchicai, Roscoe Mitchell, Fred Anderson, Kevin Drumm, Paal Nilssen-Love, Nels Cline, Tony Buck, and Joe McPhee. Rempis has been named regularly since 2006 in the annual Downbeat Critics's Poll as a "rising star" on alto saxophone, and as a "rising star" and "established talent" on baritone saxophone.

Aside from performing, Rempis is also active as a presenter. Since 2002, he's curated a weekly Thursday-night concert series for the Elastic Arts Foundation. The series has featured over 500 concerts by some of the best improvisers from around the world, while maintaining a focus on up-and-coming local musicians. In late 2005, Rempis helped form the presenters' collective Umbrella Music, working with a small group of musicians and presenters in Chicago to provide better playing opportunities for creative and improvising musicians. As part of this group, he organized the annual Umbrella Music Festival from 2006-2014.

Rempis is also one of the main organizers of the indie-rock Pitchfork Music Festival, a 60,000-person event which takes place in Chicago's Union Park every July."

sample the album:








descriptions, reviews, &c.

"[...] Firmly rooted in Free Jazz and Free Music with a touch of ethnic sounds are the Chicagoans on Triple Tube, saxophonist Dave Rempis, who worked with Ken Vandermark and leads a variety of his own units, and percussionist Michael Zerang, whose associates stretch from Joe McPhee to Hamid Drake. Third partner in the ensemble is Graz pianist Elisabeth Harnik, who has extensive notated music experience as well as improv partnerships with the likes of Joëlle Léandre.

[...]

the three live Tube variations are also open enough to emphasize personal creativity as much as group narratives. From the top Zerang's power thumps and Rempis' tenor saxophone miultiphonics are challenged by a waterfall of cascading keyboard inferences from Harnik, which spill out horizontally while working themselves into any pauses or cracks left open by the others' pauses. As the pianist's dynamics reach near-Cecil Taylor-like flexibility, the drummer responds with redoubled dark rumbles and the saxophonist with spurting glissandi. Before the three slide down to a slacker pace their collective freneticism has reach such a level of flamenco-like brawn that Andalusian echoes are insinuated. While an interregnum of swirling string driven stop time challenge enlivens "Triple Tube II", the sequende3 is stretched still further. Reshaping it involves a mixture of muted cymbal tolling and crackles from Zerang: honks and peeps from Rempis: and Harnik ruffling pedal pushed textures so that they echo throughout the piano's soundboard.

High-pitched reed sucking and guitar-like plucks from Harnik presage a more moderated and relaxed finale to "Triple Tube III". But with musician cross talk identifying that the audience yearns for more, the trio resumes the program with louder reed distortions, clattering drum clips and most importantly keyboard scrubbing theme extensions from the pianist. Finally Rempis' spindly split tones, Zernag's echoing pops and a galloping, repetitive rondo from Harnik layer the collective output to a laugher-filled ending.
