The booth is located on the West side of the Jay Pritzker Pavilion and in between both the Von Freeman Pavilion and the Jazz and Heritage Pavilion just east of the promenade.  CDs will be available throughout the Festival
I will bring all three CDs for you: “Hues of a Different Blue” ~ “The Out Front Trio” ~ “Quiet Pride”
Come by and say hello!

 

From the Artist Bio page of The Chicago Jazz Festival:    “He will lead his adaptable Out Front unit, which began as a trio, expanded to an all-star septet for his 2011 album, Hues of a Different Blue, and today, with a few personnel shuffles, will be a killer sextet. How else to describe a band including alto saxophonist supreme Bobby Watson, the pride of Kansas City, whose Horizons group was the hard bop group of the ’80s; the extraordinary young tenor saxophonist JD Allen; trumpeter Derrick Gardner, leader of the Jazz Prophets and son of Chicago-based big band leader Burgess Gardner; Indiana-rooted pianist Steve Allee, a founding member of Out Front, and super drummer Winard Harper, the greatest living stylistic descendent of the ageless Roy Haynes.”
