The Rempis Percussion Quartet's Rip Tear Crunch Coming May 2nd

SOURCE: Published:
AVON, CT -- On May 2nd, 482 Music will release The Rempis Percussion Quartet's Rip Tear Crunch (482-1046), the group's studio debut and the 11th entry in the label's ongoing Document Chicago series. Led by saxophonist Dave Rempis, a member of prominent Chicago-based groups such as Triage and the Vandermark 5, The Rempis Percussion Quartet features fellow Chicago scene veterans Anton Hatwich (Indoor/ Outdoor, Festival Quartet), Tim Daisy (Triage, Kyle Bruckman's Wrack) and Frank Rosaly (Fred Lonberg-Holm Trio, Ken Vandermark's Crisis Ensemble). The group will begin a 16- stop tour of the Midwest and East Coast in support of Rip Tear Crunch on March 29th.

“The name of Dave Rempis's latest group is fair warning: never before has the local saxophonist led a band that hit this hard," wrote the Chicago Reader's Bill Meyer in a recent live preview. “Bassist Anton Hatwich provides a stable fulcrum with his thrumming, insistent vamps, around which drummers Frank Rosaly and Tim Daisy, both on trap sets, play a dynamic array of swinging beats, interlocking Latin motifs, martial cadences, and nuanced, meterless textures. Even at full throttle the two drummers mesh precisely, despite their divergent styles...this might be the best new jazz band in town."

Critics have called Dave Rempis “one of the busiest and most versatile jazz musicians in Chicago" (Peter Margasak, Chicago Reader), “a ferocious virtuoso improviser" (Marc Meyers, AllAboutJazz.com) and “a young veteran of Chicago's experimental music scene who has been establishing a vividly recognizable voice of his own" (Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune). In addition to his well documented sideman work, he leads/ co-leads groups such as Triage, The Engines, The Rempis/Daisy Duo, and The Dave Rempis Quartet, which recorded the fifth Document Chicago series entry, 2004's Out of Season (482-1021). Founded in April 2004, The Rempis Percussion Quartet draws on a wide range of influences, including West African and Latin American rhythms, funk and free jazz, to create spontaneous music driven by unrestrained energy and a focus on ensemble motion.
