The Caleb Willitz Ensemble
The Caleb Willitz Ensemble makes earthy music in a freewheeling, improvised format. Caleb’s carefully crafted songs come alive against a backdrop of sonic experimentation and spontaneous improvisation. The Ensemble is an ever-growing cast of Chicago improvisers, and has released its first full-length LP "HOME"."

Chicago fixture the Eternals first joined forces with saxophonist Nick Mazzarella in 2012 to develop the group's sweeping, large ensemble suite, Espiritu Zombi. Since then, Mazzarella and core members Damon Locks (vocals/electronics/kalimba), Wayne Montana (bass) and Areif Sless-Kitain (drums) have continued to give shape to uncommon sounds as an agile, stripped-down quartet. Mazzarella's soprano saxophone soars above raw samples, hypnotic loops and snaking grooves as the group continues to explore new sonic dimensions.
