ISAIAH COLLIER is a Chicago-based writer, educator, arranger, and composer. An alumnus of the Jazz Institute of Chicago and The Chicago High School for the Performing Arts, Collier has worked and played with Chicago legends such as Willie Pickens, Delores Scott, Ernest Dawkins, Ari Brown, Dee Alexander, Maggie Brown, Robert Irving III, and Charles Heath IV, in addition to national and international artists such as Rene Marie, Chance the Rapper, Stefon Harris, Roy McCurty, Carmen Bradford, Carl Allen, Bennie Maupin, Bobby Broom, Quincy Phillips, Lisa Henry, Wyclef Gordon, Lewis Nash, and the AACM.

Collier draws influence from saxophone masters such as John Coltrane, Ari Brown, Roscoe Mitchell, and Gene Ammons. He has had many mentors, including Antonio Hart, Joan Collaso, Ari Brown, Willie Pickens, Ernest Dawkins, Bennie Maupin, James Perkins, Charles Heath, Bobby Watson, and others. Collier and his band ‘The Chosen Few’ just recently returned from Europe. Collier is fascinated with sounds. He believes the stage to be a lab where he can experiment and explore with sounds. To make a new statement.

Collier will present the sounds of The Almighty. An album releasing March 15th represents the connection between the human condition and the higher force that pulls us into evolution as spiritual beings.
The musicians serve as vessels for a higher source of Love and Compassion.

Still in his early 20s, Collier is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, though he focuses on saxophones. He’s already done considerable exploring with his backing band the Chosen Few. More info: https://www.colliersworld.com/

Ticket: $25 (one show) or $60 for all shows tonight (will get a wristband)!
