A world-class tenor saxophonist, this Chicagoan holds three Grammys and has shared stage or studio with the likes of Miles Davis, Randy Brecker, David Sanborn and Jimmy Chamberlin.

Our festival calls for a New Orleans-style street parade and BSBB will give us one! They’ll play a short set, too, showcasing a uniquely Chicago form of jazzy Dixieland funk.

Count Basie, a jazz legend, continues to captivate audiences worldwide even decades after his passing.
