Elijah McLaughlin and Caleb Willitz at the Milwaukee Psych Fest on May 11, 202

This year's Psych Fest could be thought of as the year that the festival embraced jazz and jazz-inspired music.  I think that was an excellent idea of the festival’s curator, guitarist Andrew Shelp.  Nothing is more psychedelic than the right kind of jazz.


One of the jazz musicians who came into Milwaukee for the Festival was Chicago-based guitarist Elijah McLaughlin, who along with keyboardist/trumpeter Caleb Willitz will be releasing an album on Centripetal Force Records today, June 7.

McLaughlin has also recently released three fine albums (on Astral Spirits and Tomkins Square labels) with the Elijah McLaughlin Ensemble.

This performance was completely improvised, and was memorable for its thoughtful and at time times extremely delicate playing.
