Chris Greene Quartet with special guests Marquis Hill Blacktet
Wednesday, Dec 19, 2012 8:00 PM CST
Mayne Stage, Chicago, IL
18 years and over
At a time when jazz continues to seek new audiences, the Chris Greene Quartet sits poised on the future’s cusp. In much the way that classical composers have historically used native folk elements as the basis for their art, the CGQ uses familiar modern materials – the funk and hip-hop he heard growing up – as a bridge between jazz and other genres.
