I’ll be playing piano with Rearden Roark at the Cubby Bear tonight.

It’s made up of talented musicians (Tom Predey, Matt Hines, Matt Christensen, and Dan Berdelle), and the originals are poetic, inspiring, and sound amazing.

Fred Cantu Poster, June 19, 2014

One of the best shows you can see – the big band is made up of the best musicians in Chicago. With a repertoire of classic and modern big band standards and modern art pieces, Fred Cantu Big Band is one of the hidden gems in the city.  Hope to see you there!

I’ll be playing piano.

I’m happy to share the video we took earlier this month of the Fred Cantu Big Band at Redmond’s.  For our tribute to Maynard Ferguson, we were fortunate enough to welcome a very special featured artist, Mark Colby, who played saxophone with Maynard’s band.

Mark Colby and JLS

Please enjoy our performance, come to our future shows, and pass the word about the band on to your friends and other venues.

I’ll be playing a fundraising dinner at the Casino Club in Chicago on Friday, May 30th for Shaw Chicago - an acting company who performs readings of works by Bernard Shaw and his contemporaries. 

I get to work with two of my favorite people, Diana Lopez (viola) and Alex Feldman (bass).  We’ll be performing a mix of jazz standards and instrumentals of contemporary pop songs.

Update:

ShawChicago jazz trio performance

I've become a huge fan of Shaw Chicago!  The actors, director, supporting staff, and patrons were incredible.  The Casino Club was a perfect venue for an incredible dinner, discussion, and sneak-peak of next season.  The actors & director did a remarkable job with three excerpts (Shaw, Oscar Wilde) and really made the night for me.
