Patricia Barber in rare concert performance.
Ten years ago, the University of Chicago 's Contemporary Chamber Players took on a sleek new name – Contempo – and for the first time in its 40-year history presented jazz on an even footing with classical music.

George Freeman at 87!
It had to be one of the more joyous birthday parties to shake up a jazz club in quite a while.

An intriguing new jazz documentary.
If you lived in Chicago in the 1990s, you probably saw them on Michigan Avenue or at the "el" stops or just about anywhere else people with some spare change in their pockets might congregate.

Regina Carter and Mavis Staples shake up Orchestra Hall.
REVIEW: Regina Carter and Mavis Staples inspire the audience to get up on its feet more than once, as if to lay claim to a music that truly does belong to all of us.

Tammy McCann partners with Laurence Hobgood.
It's quite possible that Thursday evening will mark a dramatic new beginning for two extraordinary musicians.

Wynton Marsalis and JALC in Chicago.
There's a palpable sense of occasion in the air when the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra returns to Orchestra Hall, and you feel it as soon as you walk into the room.

Celebrating Fred Anderson's legacy.
When saxophonist Fred Anderson performed, famously leaning forward a bit, torrents of sound rushed from his horn. The deep-amber tones and craggy lines at the heart of his music summed up a vast swath of jazz history, from the ricocheting bebop tunes of his youth to the experimental sounds of the future.
