A Live Jazz Set on the El Train

Unless you're listening to an iPod, you probably don't associate your train ride with jazz. But this Sunday, Chicago jazz guitarist Neal Alger will play live on a special Chi-Jazz El train traveling from the Loop to Evanston along the purple line, accompanied by Brian Gephart on sax and Mike Arnopol on bass. It's a partnership between the Mayor's Office of Special Events and the Jazz Institute of Chicago. A CTA historian will also be there to point out historic sites along the way.
