Corey Wilkes plays Miles Davis of the 1970’s & Beyond at THE JAZZ ROOM

Jazz
Chicago-based trumpeter Corey Wilkes re-imagines the music of jazz icon Miles Davis, and his innovative groove and funk sounds from the 1970’s and beyond. Premiere Thursdays presents a fresh kaleidoscope of exclusively themed programming for one-night only. As always, The Jazz Room provides a casual and intimate setting with tables and a full bar, reminiscent of the classic jazz rooms of yesteryear. Corey Wilkes is currently soothing souls at some of the most renowned clubs and festivals in the world, where he has shared the stage with numerous Jazz Masters, including Wynton Marsalis, Roy Hargrove, Marcus Belgrave, and more. His soulful, sophisticated trumpet sound has received rave reviews on projects ranging from jazz to hip-hop. He serves as an Artist in Residence for the Jazz Institute of Chicago. Miles Davis is considered one of the most innovative, influential, and acclaimed figures in the history of music. The Guardian described him as "a pioneer of 20th-century music, leading many of the key developments in the world of jazz." Miles Davis was the most widely recognized jazz musician of his era, with eight Grammy Awards and 32 nominations. He was an outspoken social critic and an arbiter of style—in attitude and fashion—as well as music."

Tribute to the Music of Cuba at THE JAZZ ROOM

Jazz
Led by percussion master Johnny Conga and piano virtuoso Orlando Fiol, the JAZZ ROOM will be bursting with the electrifying sound of the clave and other traditional rhythms in this exciting tribute to the music of Cuba. The large ensemble will be re-imaging a medley of Latin jazz and afro-Cuban standards such as Dizzy Gillespie’s “Manteca”, the Buena Vista Social Club’s “Trova Santiaguera”, and Irakere's “Calzada del Cerro”. It’s a Latin Jazz celebration that’s guaranteed to make you want to move. Your dancing shoes are welcome! The Jazz Room @ The Stage Door Theater provides a casual and intimate setting with tables and a full bar, reminiscent of the classic jazz rooms of yesteryear.
