Seven-Time Grammy Award winning drummer Paul Wertico (Pat Metheny Group, Larry Coryell, Kurt Elling, Paul Winter) joins forces with longtime friends and musical partners, guitarist John Moulder and bassist Larry Gray, for an evening of impassioned jazz and fusion featuring original compositions, as well as jazz classics. Wertico, who is also an Associate Professor of Jazz & Contemporary Music Studies at Roosevelt University’s Chicago College of Performing Arts, will also be doing a book signing of his new book, TURN THE BEAT AROUND, published by Alfred Music.


Paul Wertico
   Hailed in the press as “One of the most versatile and musical drummers in music today,” Paul Wertico was a member of the Pat Metheny Group from 1983 to 2001. During that time, he won seven Grammy Awards (three for “Best Jazz Fusion Performance,” three for “Best Contemporary Jazz Performance,” and one for “Best Rock Instrumental Performance”), won numerous magazine polls, received several gold records, and played drums & percussion on David Bowie’s hit recording (with the Pat Metheny Group), “This Is Not America.”
   He has played with countless artists and has performed in all 50 states and in over 60 countries. Paul has also played drums and percussion on hundreds of recordings. As a solo recording artist, Paul’s recordings have received great critical praise. DownBeat magazine listed Paul’s CD, "Impressions of a City," as one of its “Best CDs of 2010.” LA Weekly even wrote, “His recent records, such as 2000s "Don’t Be Scared Anymore" and the new "StereoNucleosis," are stunning examples of the electronic, rhythmic and intellectual directions jazz could be going."
   Paul is also extremely active in the field of education. In addition to teaching drums privately for over 45 years, he is an Associate Professor of Jazz Studies at Roosevelt University’s Chicago College of Performing Arts. For over four decades, he’s conducted drum masterclasses, clinics, and workshops around the world and has written educational articles for numerous magazines. His instructional DVD, "Paul Wertico's Drum Philosophy," was named “One of the best drum videos of the last 25 years” by Modern Drummer magazine, and on July 7, 2017, Alfred Music published his new book, TURN THE BEAT AROUND (A Drummer’s Guide to Playing “Backbeats” on 1 & 3), in which Paul even coined a new word for these types of reversed beats: frontbeats.
   In 2004, Paul was a Chicago Tribune “Chicagoan of the Year.” In 2010, he was honored with two “Lifetime Achievement Awards”: one from the Cape Breton International Drum Festival for his “Major Contribution to The World of Drumming & Education,” and the other from the Montréal Drum Fest. As Musical Director for the crowdsourced TV video series, "Inventing The Future," Paul was nominated for a 2012-2013 Emmy Award in the “Outstanding Achievement In Interactivity” category by The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, Midwest Chapter. He also hosted his own weekly radio show for two years, "Paul Wertico’s Wild World of Jazz."
   In the international press, Paul’s drumming has also been compared to that of an “Impressionist painter,” and he has also been called “an inspired madman,” “a restless innovator,” “a true legend of jazz drums,” “a master of drumming insanity,” “a genius of the sticks,” and a recent review stated, “Wertico simply oozes musicality.”

John Moulder 
   John Moulder is a guitarist and composer whose music has evolved from an assimilation of various musical traditions. His most recent release entitled "Earthborn Tales of Soul and Spirit" (Origin 2016) features Donny McCaslin, Marquis Hill, Paul Wertico, and many other long time musical companions. Inspired by soulful individuals, it has been described as a contemporary musical narrative. John’s compositions and playing are featured on his CDs entitled "Awakening" (Mo-Tonal Records 1993), "Through the Open Door" (Igmod/Mo-Tonal Records 1997), "Spirit Talk" (NAIM 2003), and "Trinity" (Origin 2006) and "Bifröst" (Origin 2009) were both named one of the “Ten Best Jazz CDs” of 2006 and 2009 respectively by the Chicago Tribune. On "The Eleventh Hour: Live at the Green Mill" (Origin 2012), John collaborated with his long time musical companions, Paul Wertico, Larry Gray, Jim Trompeter, and Geof Bradfield.
   Televised feature stories on John and his work have aired on "Artbeat" (WTTW) and "Chicago Tonight" (WTTW). He has played nationally and internationally at numerous festivals, clubs and concert halls and has performed with artists such as Eddie Harris, Bob Mintzer, Paul McCandless, Lyle Mays, Paul Wertico, Gary Burton, Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen, Arild Anderson, Bendik Hofseth, and Terry Callier.
   John received his Master’s Degree in Music from Northwestern University. As an educator, he is currently a faculty member at Northwestern University, Benedictine University, and Roosevelt University’s Chicago College of the Performing Arts. He has lectured, taught master classes, and conducted clinics at universities, high schools, music institutes, and other settings.
