Chicago’s Wide World of Jazz

Available to watch on this page, our Facebook page or Fulton Street Collective’s Youtube channel.

The Jazz Institute of Chicago is happy to partner with Fulton Street Collective to celebrate International Jazz Day, with musical artists who’ve come to enrich Chicago’s mix from afar.

As a culmination of Jazz Appreciation Month, we proudly present the multi-cultural diversity of local jazz expression, as some of our favorite players touch on their ties to their native lands while making music of the here and now. Join us on a 90-minute virtual guided tour in which echoes of Chile, Japan, Italy, Pakistan, Peru, Poland, Puerto Rico, Venezuela are stirred into the sounds of our city -all without leaving the comforts of home!
