Hyde Park Jazz Festival

The Hyde Park Jazz Festival has exploded in the last few years, consistently presenting a well-curated collection of outstanding artists from around the globe alongside stellar Chicago bands, and this year is no exception. I’m especially looking forward to hearing  Randy Weston in the Rockefeller Chapel for a late night set Saturday September 24th, 11 pm. I’ll be appearing on the festival the same day with Matt Ulery’s Loom and Clark Sommers’ Ba(SH) as well as Garden of Souls, a new collaboration with Nick Mazzarrella, Mike Reed, and Josh Abrams that delves into a couple of Ornette Coleman’s classic recordings: New York is Now and Love Call.
