Andy’s Jazz Club & Restaurant
in downtown Chicago is a perfect place from after work cocktails to late night dinner, all the time serving up stellar jazz groupings. The evening started with exciting arrangements presented by the Glenbrook South High School Jazz Bands
led by their Music Director Greg Wojcik. The School has performed for our Festival every year for the last 5. Then Eric Schneider
and Friends took the stage. Friends were Pete Benson
on piano, Phil Gratteau playing drums, and a great new bass player whose name will be forthcoming. Then followed Tenor Madness led by Shawn Salmon on guitar. Finally Brent Kimbrough
& Company took the stage and blew the house away. It was a major crowd pleaser with a variety of jazz ideas taking turns – as well as a mixed and energetic crowd, great Andy’s food, and a drink or two as well.
