Yep, that’s right…. Jazz is back. I’m not sure why but over the last decade or so Jazz clubs in Illinois took a bit of a nose dive and people lost interested in the smooth, humble sound that we call Jazz.
Why did this happen? Who knows. It could have been for a number of reasons – maybe people’s taste in music just changed or maybe a few Jazz legends died and people in the area kinda lost interest.
To be honest, whatever the reason was, I don’t care. Because Jazz is making a comeback. There are new jazz clubs popping up all over the place and the existing ones are becoming more and more popular.
Places like Andy’s Jazz club and restaurant, The Green Mill and The Jazz Showcase are getting busier and busier every week! This is great news for Jazz fans
One of my buddies, went to Andy’s Jazz Club and Restaurant and that’s all he could talk about – he loved it!
He’s never really been into Jazz but after one night at Andy’s he was hooked. He was only in town for 4 nights and spent half of them at Andy’s!
Historically, Jazz has always been popular in Chicago, especially Illinois and it’s great to see the jazz scene back where it should – back on the map becoming more popular than ever.
If you are from Illinois but never been to a jazz club then you should definitely treat yourself. Take your husband, wife, partner or a group of friends to the nearest club and enjoy yourselves!
Even if you have never really been a fan of jazz I encourage you to give it a try. You might be surprised how much you enjoy it. Once you get into the rhythm and you’ve had a few drinks you’ll be rocking the night away to the wonderful sound of Jazz.
It’s not just illinois that is seeing a comeback in the jazz scene. It’s happening all over the country – all four corners of the USA are seeing a renaissance in the jazz scene. Don’t fight it – instead enjoy it and let yourself be carried away in the sound of Jazz!
