Current Episode

August 25th, 2014


This week's Arts Section has a Chicago Jazz Festival Flavor.  We’ll profile a band that’s performing at the fest next Sunday.  What makes this ensemble "Noteworthy" is that it’s made up entirely of band directors and music teachers from the Chicago Public School system.  And we'll get some insight into how the 36th annual jazz festival was put together. WDCB's Gary Zidek sat down with Neil Tesser.  The renowned jazz journalist is a member of the Chicago Jazz Festival programming committee. And the Dueling Critics stop by to discuss "Witch Slap".
