Chicago Jazz String Summit Reviewed

Source: I Care If You Listen.

The seventh annual Chicago Jazz String Summit took place virtually on April 30-May 1, 2021, with evening performances and daytime workshops live-streamed on Twitch and hosted by Chicago’s Experimental Sound Studio. This year’s program could be summed up in one word—diverse. From bluesy twoubadou to experimental abstractions, the program ventured into far corners of jazz-adjacent contemporary music on strings.
