Navy Pier hosts a 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 not 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 of champagne.
This Thursday enjoy the eclectic sounds of the Cole D'Genova Quartet. As a pianist, vocalist, and composer, Cole D'Genova has spent most of life crafting his eclectic voice beginning his career at age 16 as a jazz pianist around his native Chicago. Now based in Chicago and Los Angeles, he is both an in demand studio musician as well as a touring performer around the globe. He has worked with Grammy Award winner Chance the Rapper, Lupe Fiasco, Brett Dennen, Gallant, and Latin Grammy Award winner Lucky Diaz, to name a few.
