Summer Jazz Series: Brian Krock's liddle


Location: Mary Loretto & Terrence J. Dillon Courtyard

Spend your summer evening grooving to jazz in the Mary Loretto & Terrence J. Dillon Courtyard. Enjoy a cash bar, freshly popped popcorn, and featured works of art during every concert. Bring your own blanket or lawn chair. Picnicking is encouraged.


liddle features Brian Krock (saxophone and clarinet), Olli Hirvonen (guitar), Mary Kenney (bass) and Nathan Ellman-Bell (drums).


Best known as the brain behind the critically-acclaimed big band behemoth, Big Heart Machine, Brian Krock is a fierce and probing improviser on the saxophone and a central force in the creative music community in New York City. After years steeped in the world of large ensemble jazz (as documented on his critically-acclaimed 2018 recording Big Heart Machine), Krock initiated his exciting new quartet- LIDDLE- as an opportunity to focus on the group improvisation and collective interchange that is a hallmark of the jazz tradition. liddle is a modern jazz quartet dedicated to performing new compositions which the New York Times describes as “musically, warped original music, informed by metal, serialism and the jazz avant-garde.”


All Museum galleries and exhibitions are also open.


Convenient, free parking available in the Bulla Road Lot off of Twyckenham Drive. A shuttle runs continuously between the lot, the Hesburgh Library, and the Museum until 7:45 p.m. Parking (with no shuttle) is also available in the B1 and C1 lots south of the Stadium.


Series curated by Stephen and Mary Merriman of Merrimans’ Playhouse.
