I didn’t have room to write about everybody in my coverage of this year’s Umbrella Music Festival, which begins tonight with five performances at the Chicago Cultural Center. But every single act certainly deserves to get written about. This evening is the first half of the mini fest European Jazz Meets Chicago, and the one act on the bill that I wasn’t able to cover was the duo of local clarinetist James Falzone and Christof Kurzmann, a fascinating improviser from Vienna who’s now based in Buenos Aires.
