THE MAXWELL ENSEMBLE WAS STARTED IN 2005 BY DRUMMER STEVE MAXWELL, AND HAS BEEN PERFORMING IN AND AROUND CHICAGO SINCE ITS CREATION. THIS GROUP IS A CHICAGO JAZZ COLLECTIVE THAT EMPHASIZES PUBLIC PERFORMANCE OF ORIGINAL JAZZ COMPOSITIONS AND GREAT CLASSIC TUNES BY LOCAL MUSICIANS. THE PERSONNEL ARE ROTATING, BUT INCLUDE MANY SUCCESSFUL LOCAL ARTISTS. LATELY STUDIO RECORDING HAS BECOME ANOTHER IMPORTANT ASPECT THAT WE HAVE ADDED TO OUR MISSION. WE SEEK TO CATALOG THE CREATIVE POTENTIAL OF ALL THE WONDERFUL MUSICIANS THAT ENRICH THIS CITY FOR POSTERITY.
