Tuesdays on the Terrace: Jason Stein Quartet



Enjoy an evening of free music on the MCA’s Anne and John Kern terrace and sculpture garden with our annual summer performance series highlighting artists from Chicago’s internationally renowned jazz community.

The Jason Stein Quartet brings together acclaimed Chicago bass clarinetist Jason Stein with three of his favorite improvisers: Joshua Abrams on bass, Frank Rosaly on drums, and Keefe Jackson on tenor saxophone and contrabass clarinet. Stein’s Chicago quartet seamlessly integrates rigorous written material with fierce and imaginative improvisational flights. The band focuses on a combination of Stein’s original compositions as well as under-explored compositions by jazz luminaries such as Lee Konitz, Warne Marsh, Lenny Tristano, and Thelonious Monk.

Hosted by Al Carter-Bey, WHPK 88.5 FM, University of Chicago.
