Moreno Veloso, son of Tropicália legend Caetano Veloso, made his songwriting debut in 1982 with "Um Canto de Afoxé Para Bloco do lle.” Veloso spent part of his youth touring with and performing alongside Brazilian music icons including his father, Gilberto Gil, and Carlinhos Brown. His second album, Coisa Boa, was released in September of 2014. The album, recorded all over the world with nearly 30 musicians, includes three songs that are featured in Richard Linklater's 2014 film Boyhood, which debuted earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival.

The Nick Mazzarella Trio, formed in 2008, features Chicago-based musicians Nick Mazzarella (alto saxophone), Anton Hatwich (bass), and Frank Rosaly (drums). The group is dedicated to exploring free jazz, collaborative improvisation, and the textural and interactive potential of the saxophone trio setting. The trio has performed at the Chicago Jazz Festival, the Umbrella Music Festival and has, to date, released two albums, both critically praised, and both featuring Mazzarella's original compositions: Aviary, and This is Only a Test: Live at the Hungry Brain. Their third original album will be released in 2015.
