• Jason Adasiewicz: music in a different kitchen

For my buck there’s no greater double bill in Chicago than a Wednesday evening at the Hideout, where Soup & Bread is followed by the club’s Immediate Sound jazz series. The biggest problem for me is that there always a couple of hours to kill between the two activities. But this week the two teams are sort of bridging the gap when Soup & Bread goes jazz soup. A bunch of the regular performers and organizers behind the music will show off their improv skills in the kitchen. At press time the soup chefs were Mike Reed, Dave Rempis, Kent Kessler, Nate Lepine, Jason Adasiewicz, and Mitch Cocanig, and a couple of friends. Ryan Hembrey, the club’s sound guru and an excellent bassist, will spin music as people sop up potages. All proceeds will go to Irving Park Community Food Pantry.
