The sound of Jazz in Chicago

Millennium Park is a symbol of Chicago. Throughout the summer, its stage is home to local and renowned national and international artists in plays, music and dance. From big festivals to small get-togethers, Lake Michigan shore welcomes its visitors at every step.

Not rarely, I find it difficult to choose among the many events that take place every night in Chicago; however, one can never go wrong with a bicycle ride along the shore and dinner and drinks on the grass in front of the stage, at Jay Pritzker pavilion.

This weekend hosted the annual Chicago Jazz Festival, a three day event, integrating a wide variety of jazz.

Along the years, many world-renowned jazz artists have performed here, to the delight of both Chicagoans and tourists.  Grammy Award winner Esperanza Spalding shined the stage yesterday evening, along with many other amazingly talented artists from all across the globe.

I caught a glimpse of the spectacle in a few photos that I hope you will enjoy.

Mark your calendars for next year!
