Mike Reed's Loose Assembly 

When: Sat., Feb. 15, 9:30 p.m. 2014
"Empathetic Parts," the 33-minute title track of the latest album by local quintet Loose Assembly, introduces a form of "collective arranging" developed by drummer and bandleader Mike Reed. After a brief composed introduction, each player—Reed, bassist Joshua Abrams, vibraphonist Jason Adasiewicz, cellist Tomeka Reid, alto saxophonist Greg Ward, and guest reedist Roscoe Mitchell—assumes responsibility for one of six categories of musical activity, among them long tones, free time, pointillistic swing, and silence. —Bill Meyer, 2010
