Live at Studio5! Howard Levy with Michael and Lorenzo Riessler

Howard Levy, a multiple Grammy-winning harmonica and piano virtuoso and a founding member of Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, returns to Studio5 with two father-and-son German musicians: Michael Riessler (bass clarinet) and Lorenzo Riessler (drums). Levy created a radically new approach to the harmonica and revolutionized the way a diatonic harmonica is played, transforming it into a fully chromatic instrument. He has worked with Paquito D’Rivera, Donald Fagen and Paul Simon. German-based bass clarintettist Michael Riessler is considered one of the “most virtuosic instrumentalists and creative composers” (Süddeutsche Zeitung). He was a member of the National Jazz Orchestra in Paris and has performed at major jazz festivals around the world. Drummer Lorenzo Riessler, who resides in Berlin, plays with bands and singers in the UK and Europe. He has performed at major jazz venues and festivals internationally. This concert will be recorded live for Chicago Jazz Live on WDCB.
