Vibraphonist Jason Adasiewicz is one of those Chicago musicians who had made a name for himself before the release of his first album. His new album, Sun Rooms, features drummer Mike Reed, known for founding the Pitchfork Music Festival and playing the skins for People, Places & Things, Loose Assembly and ESO; and bassist Nate McBride, who has played with just about everybody. It’s very much a vibes album (duh), so its commercial reach will be limited. But add up the resumes for all three of these guys, and you get quite the modern jazz nexus brewing. Lyrical yet a little tame, Sun Rooms angles toward brighter things in the future.
