One less summer festival in Chicago

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The New York Times reports today that the Big Apple's famed JVC Jazz Festival is shutting down after 37 years — and taking its satellite fests with it. That means no JVC Jazz Festival in Chicago this summer, or Miami.

Last year's JVC festival in Chicago lit up the city's jazz clubs with some impressive performances by a lot of local luminaries, like sax man Eric Schneider and young trumpet star Corey Wilkes, as well as an oddly scheduled show by ... Pat Benatar.
