Millennium Park Jazz Series: Corey Wilkes in Legends and Lions

Aug 3 2006 - 5:30pm
Aug 3 2006 - 7:00pm

Legends and Lions: Von Freeman with Jimmy Cobb, plus
Corey Wilkes Young Lions Project

This concert features Chicago jazz legends and rising stars performing on the same stage. Von Freeman is considered the President of Jazz in Chicago. Like his predecessor Lester Young (known as Prez), Freeman's tough and elegant style is instantly identifiable as one of the most unique tenor saxophone sounds to come out of Chicago or anywhere. Former Miles Davis drummer Jimmy Cobb, pianist Richard Wyans and bassist Jon Weber join Vonski for the ride. Trumpeter Corey Wilkes (pictured), one of the most versatile and talented of Chicago's rising stars, leads a band of bedfellows featuring original music representing the new generation of jazz.
