It’s going to be a new tomorrow in Cincinnati on Friday.

Shawn Maxwell’s New Tomorrow will perform at 8 p.m. Friday at Schwartz’s Point, 1901 Vine St., Cincinnati.

Shawn Maxwell’s New Tomorrow is a quintet made up of some of Chicago’s finest musicians. Performing all original material, they specialize in a style of jazz that is heavily influenced by and blended with several other modern genres. Focusing on composition just as much as improvisation, they reveal stunning melodies hidden within complex time signatures. This new approach in Maxwell’s writing brings a perfect blend of composition and improvisation for a new direction in jazz.

The group is on tour in support of Music in My Mind, which was released by Origin Records on Tuesday, May 15 and is streaming at https://soundcloud.com/shawnmaxwell/sets/music-in-my-mind-shawn-maxwells-new-tomorrow.
