This cutting-edge jazz ensemble pushes the boundaries of the genre with its fusion of jazz, rock, funk, and electronic music. Led by guitarist and composer, Jeff Parker, an integral part of the “Modern Chicago Sound” and member of the Chicago-based indie band, Tortoise, the New Breed is comprised of some of the most exciting and innovative musicians on the scene today. 

Pitchfork describes their latest recording Mondays at The Enfield Tennis Academy as “spiritual jazz, knotty melodies, and effortless solos over a slow-moving foundation…mesmerizing as a luxurious, beatific ambient record.” 

Supported by the Logan Center Jazz Forever Fund, a gift of the Revada Foundation. Presented in partnership with Chicago Jazz Magazine, DownBeat, Jazz Institute of Chicago, and WDCB 90.9 FM.

Before the concert, enjoy a free performance by Rufus Parenti's Flower Quartet at Café Logan from 6:00–7:00 PM as part of the Chicago Stage series, presented by the Logan Center and the Jazz Institute of Chicago.
