Navy Pier kicks off free six-week jazz ensemble concert series at new craft cocktail lounge. Every Thursday from February 23 to April 6, guests are welcome to swing and sway to the smooth tunes of three prominent local jazz ensembles.
The six-week soirée offers a fun, sultry twist to Thursday evenings, while giving a nod to Chicago's historic and influential jazz scene. Performances begin at 5:30 p.m. and end at 7 p.m. During the jazz sets, Tiny Tavern will offer guests complimentary appetizers with the purchase of a bottle of wine or champagne.
This week enjoy the mellow tunes of the Kenthaney Redmond Quartet. A flutist and composer raised on the Westside of Chicago, Redmond began his music education at the age of 10 playing the violin. He later changed to the flute and at the age of 12 and discovered jazz shortly after. He draws inspiration from a wide variety of flutist including Hubert Laws, Jean-Pierre Rampal, Greg Pattillo and Ian Anderson.
