In two sessions, at 6 and 8 pm on Friday, jazz pianist Matthew Fries and bassist Phil Palombi will record a concert in an intimate live setting in front of an audience at Overneath studios in downtown Kalamazoo.  It's part of a series hosted by Overneath called the KBR Sessions.

Fries is the newest member of Western Michigan University’s jazz faculty, having joined the WMU School of Music last September. In an interview with Cara Lieurance, he discusses his decision to leave New York City after 23 years, his influential teacher, Donald Brown, and his recent project with his sister, artist Loryn Spangler-Jones

Reservations for the KBR Sessions are available at this website.
