One event on July 13, 2019 at 1:00pm

Join us for a FREE concert for all ages featuring Jane Bunnett and Maqueque highlight this year’s festival. A long-time jazz musician on the scene, Canadian Jane Bunnett began digging deep into the music of Cuba during a trip there in 1982. She has been credited with introducing a lot of great Cuban musicians to North American audiences over the past couple of decades, including Dafnis Prieto, Yosvanny Terry, Pedrito Martínez and David Virelles. Her latest project, Maqueque is an assembly of all-star Cuban musicians, a sextet which includes herself and five extraordinary young women. A tribute to trumpeter and conguero Jerry Gonzales by the Chicago Latin Jazz Collaborative will also be featured.

JazzCity is a free concert series initiated in 1997 by the Jazz Institute of Chicago in collaboration with the Chicago Park District to bring people together from across the city to listen to Chicago?s top jazz musicians. JazzCity is sponsored by WDCB 90.9 FM and WHPK 88.5 FM Radio and supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
