Chicago guitarist / composer Eli Winter’s self-titled album, forthcoming August 2022 on Three Lobed Recordings, finds him building on the promise of his recent records—like 2020’s Unbecoming and his 2021 collaboration with Cameron Knowler, Anticipation—with a gem of an album on which he leads an ad-hoc group that delicately balances a range of colors and moods. Winter is an accomplished player with impeccable technique and an unassuming virtuosity, and this stunning third album sees him (and his guitar) expand into the role of bandleader, running a tight group through his taut, thrilling compositions. The result is the sound of an artist escaping any lingering shadows of his primary influences and coming into his own. Assisted by a murderer’s row of peers and contemporaries including Cameron Knowler, Yasmin Williams, David Grubbs, Ryley Walker, Tyler Damon, jaimie branch, and others, Eli Winter showcases a compositional depth and authoritative skill only hinted at on Winter’s rightfully acclaimed previous work.
Eli Winter and Cameron Knowler will play as a duo for an opening set. See less
