Jeremy Cunningham

The Weather Up There


Chicago drummer and composer Jeremy Cunningham wrote 'The Weather Up There in response to the loss of his brother Andrew, who died in a home invasion robbery in 2008. Cunningham formed a 'drum choir' for these recordings, comprised of close mentors and colleagues Mike Reed, Makaya McCraven, and Mikel Patrick Avery. He also tapped regular collaborators Ben LaMar Gay, Jaimie Branch, Tomeka Reid, Dustin Laurenzi, Matt Ulery, and Josh Johnson.

Co-produced by Jeff Parker and Paul Bryan, and engineered by Paul Bryan and John McEntire, this new work confronts the tragedy of violence and examines the acute ripple effect on several people's lives through the lens of memory, response, and collage.
