Among the Chicago Jazz Orchestra’s accomplishments are 24 consecutive appearances at the Kennedy Center Honors Gala, a rare “Five Star” Downbeat Magazine rating for its recording Clark Terry and Jeff Lindberg’s Chicago Jazz Orchestra: George Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, and recent appearances with an incredible array of guest artists including Ahmad Jamal, Arturo Sandoval, Michael Feinstein, Randy Brecker, Kurt Elling, and many many, more. Last year alone, the CJO’s performances will have been seen at some of Chicago’s most impressive venues including the Pritzker Pavillion at Millennium Park, the Auditorium Theatre, Pick-Staiger Concert Hall, the Ravinia Festival, and many more.
The CJO is committed to bringing jazz orchestra music to a wide variety of musical tastes. They will close out our week of the Chi-Town Jazz Festival at the Jazz Showcase on 3/11. See you there?
