Chi-town Jazz Festival 2010

For those in, around, or coming through our fine city of Chicago this weekend for Jazzfest, check out the Chicago Reader’s festival guide (and the perfect weather forecast). Some great artists and groups passing through this year. But be particularly excited about Nicole Mitchell…

via ChicagoReader: This year’s artist in residence is Chicago flutist, composer, and bandleader Nicole Mitchell, current president of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians. She performs four times: on Thursday she’ll duet with mercurial pianist Anthony Davis, on Saturday she’ll lead her bold new quartet, Sonic Projections, and on Friday and Sunday she’ll premiere new large-scale compositions with her Black Earth Orchestra and Black Earth Ensemble, respectively.

Full list of performers and times here.

Gonna be fun for the ears.
