Check out Chi-Town Jazz Festival and the Rova Saxophone Quartet this week.

Whether you’re into the more conventional Ellington/Basie standards kind of stuff, or bebop, or fusion, or the free-form dissonant Sun Ra kind of stuff, you’re obviously very lucky to live in a city like Chicago, where there’s more jazz than you can possibly take in.

Take in as much as you can this week.

I caught the Rova Saxophone Quartet at the Chicago Cultural Center tonight. SAIC instructor/sound artist Lou Mallozi joined them onstage. Not exactly anything you’d tap your toes to, but stimulating nevertheless. You can catch them Wednesday March 17th at the Hideout (1354 West Wabansia Avenue, Chicago, IL 60642-1519). Their set starts at 9:30 p.m.

Also happening this week is the Chi-Town Jazz Festival.
