Mike Reed http://wrti.org en Tracing The Evolution Of Lost Chicago Jazz http://wrti.org/post/tracing-evolution-lost-chicago-jazz Drummer Mike Reed put together his quartet People, Places and Things to play music by their 1950s forebears. But it makes sense that, after a few years together, they'd also play later pieces, tracking the evolution of Chicago jazz on a new album titled <em>Clean on the Corner</em>. One dividend of their repertory work is that it inspires Reed to write his own tunes in the same spirit, like "The Lady Has a Bomb."<p>In the last few years, the quartet has played dozens of gigs in Chicago, on tour in the U.S. and in Europe.
