First Unitarian Church of Chicago in Hyde Park with the great Erwin Helfer. Then it moved downtown to the new, beautiful listening room that is Winter’s Jazz Club near Navy Pier for three sets.
First up was singer Typhanie Monique sounding great and backed by Ryan Cohan on piano, Larry Kohut on bass, and Greg Artry on drums. Then Sarah Marie Young wove her singing magic helped by Steve Million on piano, Andrew Vogt on bass, and Greg Artry playing drums. Finally the Aaron McEvers Quintet closed out the evening. Winter’s owner, Scott Stegman, was MC and Nancy Meyerson from Care For Real spoke of Chi-Town Jazz Festival’s mission. It was a terrific night of jazz!
