Chicago Jazz Band The David Boykin Expanse to play Beloit


Beloit, Wis.—The David Boykin Expanse, one of the most exciting and innovative jazz quintets from Chicago, will play at Beloit College on Friday, Nov. 15, at 8 p.m., in the Moore Lounge, on the second-floor of Pearsons Hall.

The David Boykin Expanse has played throughout the United States, including on the main stage at the Chicago Jazz Festival. They have also performed at venues around the world, including visits to Russia and France. Through creativity and explorations into sound, David Boykin and his ensemble have gained acclaim, performing with many world-renowned musicians, including Ernest Dawkins, Malachi Favors, Kahil El Zabar, Leroy Jenkins, Ari Brown, and Nicole Mitchell.

Boykin, a distinguished musician and composer, has been cited as one of the most experimental and talented musicians on the Chicago music scene. After his five-piece Outet, which released its debut in 1998,

and a solo album, Boykin’s new Expanse is his largest ensemble yet, whose instrumentation usually features three saxophones, flute, bass, piano and drums.

The concert is open to the public. Admission is free, but a donation of either $1 or a canned food item is requested. Donations will go to the Boys’ and Girls’ Club of Beloit and the Battered Women’s Shelter.
