Brad Goode was named one of the most influential Chicagoans of the 1980s by the Chicago Tribune, who credited him as a “major catalyst in the revitalization of the Chicago jazz scene.” His 15 solo recordings can be heard on the Delmark, Sunlight, SteepleChase, and Origin labels.

Adrean Farrugia is one of the Jazz Room’s favourite pianists, both as a sideman and as a leader of his own trio.
