Hailing from Chicagoland area, Andrew Vogt is one of the finest guitarist in Chicago. Thanks to his natural talent and guitar playing skills he has made thousands of fans and succeeded in impressing music critics. He has played alongside top legendary artists like Ernie Watts, Donny McCaslin and Natt Watts and recently awarded Luminarts’ People’s Choice Award for Solo Jazz Performance in 2020.
We recently took an opportunity of listening to his performance of the track “Awakening”. Inspiring and Impresses are the two words came into mind after listening to this melodious track and watching him performing in front of a full house at Form Chicago.
There is no doubt it’s a beautiful performance by Bassist/Composer/Instrumentalist Andrew Vog. Performance also features Sam Trump & Jeff Swanson. This dramatic piece creates an intense, rhythmic, driving, angular sound that is quite contemporary;. The rich and resonant brass and the crisp and exact percussion dominate the scene throughout, as the main theme is somewhat developed. This composition can prove to be a good mood changer.
Performance is so smooth and polite that you feel its effects on your soul. There is no doubt it’s one of the best performance by Andrew Vog. “Awakening” illustrates music’s ability to connect us to that peaceful beauty which lies amongst life’s chaos. These days, we’re ever more grateful for the times and music we got to make together and look forward to creating again one day. You will surely enjoy it. Check it out.
Andrew continues to perform with the Chicago elites, including; May Erlewine, Sarah Marie Young, Sharon Irving, Brendan Forrest, Morgan Pirtle, Woody Goss, Bonzo Squad and more.
