Some Acts to Catch at the Chicago Jazz Festival

SHARE Some Acts to Catch at the Chicago Jazz Festival

Swingin' sounds will dominate downtown this weekend. The 32nd Chicago Jazz Festival kicks off today and so Eight Forty-Eight is all that jazz. Think of it as a mini-tour to many of the jazz happenings you can drop in on this weekend. From the Cultural Center to the Pritzker to the Petrillo - fans will have plenty of artists and styles to choose from. WBEZ's Richard Steele will be hopping between the stages, trying to absorb as much as possible. He offers a preview of what he's looking forward to hearing.
