Ravinia Jazz Mentors

Saturday April 21, 2018

Ravinia Jazz Mentors

For over 20 years the Ravinia Jazz Mentors have ensured that the deep connection that Chicago has with jazz continues for generations to come, and they will assemble at Ravinia for a showcase of their own remarkable talents. This group of eight of the city’s finest jazz performers is led by pianist Willie Pickens, a featured artist at this year’s Chicago Jazz Festival who has played alongside such figures as Sammy Davis Jr., Joe Henderson, and James Moody. Saxophonist Pat Mallinger (co-leader of the Sabertooth quartet at the Green Mill and a quintet with Eric Schneider) and drummer Ernie Adams (a veteran of tours and recordings with Arturo Sandoval, Joe Zawinul, Al DiMeola, and many others) have both been members of the group since its inception. Guitarist Bobby Broom is also a longtime member of the Jazz Mentors in addition to being a frequent collaborator with Sonny Rollins. The ensemble also includes trumpeter Pharez Whitted, whose gigs have included the 1988 Presidential Inauguration and The Arsenio Hall Show; bassist Dennis Carroll, also a longtime member of the Chicago Jazz Orchestra; trombonist Audrey Morrison, a former member of Clark Terry’s big band; and Latin percussionist Jean-Christophe Leroy, who has played with Miami Sound Machine and in the pit for On Your Feet!, the Broadway musical based on the lives of Emilio and Gloria Estefan.
