Chicago bassist Clark Sommers made impact in 2013 with the debut recording of his band’s eponymous recording, “Ba(SH),” featuring fellow Chicagoans Geof Bradfield playing reeds and Dana Hall on drums. In March, the band will release its followup, “Peninsula,” featuring Sommers’ original compositions. Here’s an early chance to hear this music. 9 p.m. Friday and 8 p.m. Saturday at the Green Mill Jazz Club, 4802 N. Broadway; 773-878-5552 or www.greenmilljazz.com.
