Chicago Jazz Festival
I am honored and excited to announce that my quartet will perform at this year's Chicago Jazz Festival! My aunt Cynthia moved to Chicago from our hometown of Cincinnati when I was 6 years old, and shortly after, my family began attending the Chicago Jazz Festival. One of the concerts I remember most is Wayne Shorter performing his compositions arranged for a large ensemble of Chicago musicians. I remember the colorful sounds that Wayne sent soaring into the air during his solos. Sitting on the lawn in front of the Petrillo Band Shell with my family, I tried to soak in all the textures of sound.
The Chicago Jazz Festival has always been something I've looked forward to throughout the summer. I hope you will join me and my fellow bandmates at this year's Fest!
