The Jazz Institute of Chicago presents the first Jazz Links jam session of the year. Students get an opportunity to perform with world-class professionals in the Jazz Links house band, led by pianist Ken Chaney. These sessions are both an educational experience for the students and an inter-generational community event, where parents, teachers, students and the general public witness the development of young talent before their eyes and ears.
Come on out and support the next generation of jazz talent in Chicago. If you know any young musicians looking to meet jazz musicians their age and get a chance to play with some of the best talent in Chicago, tell them to bring their instruments.
Come to Randolph St. Cafe in the Chicago Cultural Center, 77 E Randolph at 5 p.m. on 1/13 and enjoy. Free admission.
