Chicago Cultural Center , Loop Thursday September 1 2016 - Sunday September 4 2016 Free

Chicago is known for its blues musicians, but these days it's more of a jazz city. The annual Chicago Jazz Festival celebrates contemporary improvisors and legendary players with four days of concerts at the Chicago Cultural Center and Millennium Park. Last year Muhal Richard Abrams, José James and Dee Dee Bridgewater were featured performers, so you can look forward to a similar caliber of talent in 2016.
