Chicago Jazz Festival: Aug. 29-Sept. 1
Musically, Chicago is so well known for it’s Blues and Hip-Hop luminaries, its role in the Jazz game often gets overlooked. Lest we forget Chicago was home to such greats as Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong and His Hot Five, Benny “the King of Swing” Goodman, and Bix Beiderbecke. Sure, all those people are dead now, but the music carries on. Swing by Millenium Park for the 2013 Chicago Jazz Festival this weekend to see what’s what.
