In another club across town jazz artists did away with traditional head-melody / chorus / head-style of playing and began improvising freely (think Coltrane's "My Favorite Things"). They also performed completely original and free-flowing compositions.

As a result, he's ready to build a wall around his swamp and let the world go its separate way.</span></p><p></p> Fri, 11 Jul 2014 18:44:04 +0000 SChavis 8181 at http://kuvo.org Theater Review: Boulder Dinner Theater's Shrek Performance review: 2014 Chicago Blues Festival http://kuvo.org/post/performance-review-2014-chicago-blues-festival <div><span style="line-height: 1.5;">The </span>31st<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> Annual Chicago Blues Fest, this year sub-titled “Blues by the Lake”, was the weekend of June 13-15 in Grant Park.
