Hyde Park Jazz Festival
Time Out says
The Hyde Park Jazz Festival adapted to the times last September and hosted a series of outdoor shows. The beloved neighborhood jazz festival typically takes place at venues throughout Hyde Park, but most performance will once again take place outdoors this year—with the possible exception of a couple of shows inside the Logan Center. Local drummer and bandleader Makaya McCraven will debut a new piece commissioned by the festival on Saturday, September 25. Other highlights of this year's programming includes sets from saxophonist Isaiah Collier, violinist Tomeka Reid, the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble and vocalist Dee Alexander accompanied by the Metropolitan Jazz Octet. As ususal, all performances are free to attend.
