• Free Fall

For the Reader‘s new Photo Pit feature this week Robert Loerzel shot the Scandinavian group Atomic killing it at the Green Mill last weekend. The quintet also played a knockout set to a full house at the Chicago Cultural Center on Monday night.

Two of the group’s Norwegian members—pianist Haavard Wiik and bassist Ingebrigt Haaker Flaten—are still in town, and tonight they play at Elastic with Free Fall, their long-running post-Jimmy Giuffre improvising trio with reedist Ken Vandermark.
