Millennium Park FREE Jazz Night

Made in Chicago: World Class Jazz celebrates its 10th year at Millennium Park with a six-concert series featuring Chicago’s leading jazz artists.  The diverse program includes concerts that explore jazz connections to Africa, the Middle East and the rhythm and roots of the South.  The 2014 series includes tribute concerts and retrospectives, along with opening night of the 36th Annual Chicago Jazz Festival. Presented by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events in partnership with Jazz Institute of Chicago, the free weekly series begins

August 7: John Moulder’s Earthborne Tales of Soul and Spirit

Moulder powerfully summon heavenly spirits. That’s not only because he’s the best jazz guitarist who happens to be a practicing priest – “varying dimensions of one vocation,” he says – but also because his sheets of electric sound unleash such a positive force. “Earthborne Tales of Soul and Spirit” is music that engages the connection to spirit that resonates in our everyday lives. Featuring an original suite of music performed by the guitarist and a diverse set of musicians including New York saxophonist Donnie McCaslin, pianist Jim Trompeter, trumpeter Marquis Hill, bassist Eric Hochberg and drummer Xavier Breaker. The opening act features the Gallery 37 After School Matters Jazz Ensemble.

Free Jazz - Every Thursday (July 24 - August 28) at 6:30 PM in Millennium Park downtown Chicago. 

  Lets meet at 6:00 PM  to chat, grab seats to enjoy the concert and then gather after to socialize more. 

We can gather at the cement steps (between seats and lawn) at west (Michigan Ave side) entrance in the pavilion.
