Chad Taylor is one shapeshifting drummer, as comfortable backing up indie rock acts like Iron & Wine and the Swell Season as he is mixing it up with the legendary experimental improvisers of his hometown, Chicago. Currently based in Philadelphia, Taylor has recently been touring extensively with guitarist Marc Ribot, bassist Eric Revis, and trumpeter Jaimie Branch, and frequently stops at The Jazz Gallery on his way through New York.

This Thursday, April 8, Taylor steps out as a leader on the Gallery stage with a trio featuring saxophonist Brian Settles and pianist Neil Podgurski. Check out the group’s set from happy lucky no. 1 in Brooklyn, recorded last summer.

The Chad Taylor Trio plays The Jazz Gallery on Thursday, August 8, 2019. The group features Mr. Taylor on drums, Brian Settles on saxophone, and Neil Podgurski on piano. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. $15 general admission ($10 for members), $20 reserved table seating ($15 for members) for each set. FREE for SummerPass holders. Purchase tickets here.
