They will be joined by Stateside drummer Makaya McCraven, trumpeter Jaimie Branch's Fly Or Die Ensemble, cellist Tomeka Reid and bassist Jason Ajemian.
On night two, 19 October, McCraven will perform with London-based Ashley Henry and the RE:Ensemble.

The Chicago x London events are organised by London’s EZH (formally Jazz Standard) and Chicago label International Anthem.
Over the last year, London’s jazz musicians have been growing in stature across the US, inspiring audiences in New York and Texas. In March, EZH and Jazz re:freshed co-hosted the first ever UK jazz showcase at SXSW, further raising its profile across the pond.
