Jazz Showcase

The Jazz Showcase is truly a historic spot in downtown Chicago. Owned by Joe Segal, it's been swingin' some a that jazz since the 40's! Players like Miles Davis, Louie Bellson, Buddy Rich, Duke Ellington, and Art Blakey have played there just to name a few. So, if you're looking for a place to watch some kickin' jazz it's probably where you want to be. Also, for musicians. Check out the Friday the jam sessions. It's a great way to meet musicians and start networking.

The Jazz Showcase jam sessions are Sunday nights. It's defs one of the best jam sessions in the city of Chicago. It's great for getting to know the local talent and get some gigs.
