The Jazz Institute of Chicago’s Annual Jazz Club Tour rolls out Wednesday August 27th, 2014!

What is the intersection of tradition and innovation? Jazz, of course! Find that intersection and many interesting side streets between 6:00 p.m. and midnight on Wednesday, August 27, 2014 at our Annual Jazz Club Tour.
The Jazz Club Tour takes its patrons for a ride to venerable jazz clubs, small joints, and community centers throughout Chicago. Explore and enjoy the longstanding bebop traditions of the Jazz Showcase in the south Loop, the upscale environs of the Drake Hotel’s Palm Court and Coq d’Or, and everything in between.
