The Humble Organisms are a Chicago-area jazz quartet that blends classic jazz standards with more contemporary jazz styles and movements. Led by upright bassist Andrew Vogt and keyboardist Dan Chase, the Organisms are all full-time musicians working in a variety of musical genres.
The collaboration of four friends looking to push one another to excellence, the Humble Organisms’ club set mixes original music with pop and rock hits – all rendered in a jazz-funk fusion style. At weddings and corporate events, the group trades organs for piano and mixes familiar standards and torch songs with a few surprises.
The organisms can also perform as a quintet, adding either saxophone or a female vocalist to the group’s core of guitar, piano, bass and drums.
