The Metropolitan Jazz Octet (MJO) is the reawakening of a group that was created in the 1950s by saxophonist/arranger Tom Hilliard (1930-2006). When Hilliards health started to decline, he left the MJO library to his former student, Jim Gailloreto. In 2014 Gailloreto organized a group of musicians (including other former Hilliard students) to read through the charts and create a new iteration of Hilliards group. In early 2018 the MJO gave a riveting performance at Studio5 to a packed house. We are excited to welcome them back.

This year, MJO will partner with dynamic jazz vocalist Dee Alexander to perform music from their new album Dee Sings Billie, a reimagining of classic Billie Holiday songs.  Dee has selected swing standards such as The Blues Are a Brewin, Aint Nobodys Business and also iconic ballads like Im a Fool To Want You and Billies famous Strange Fruit.

The CD will be released on Delmark Records in the Fall of 2019.  The music is both swinging and relevant, a beautiful vehicle for Dees voice and style.  2019 is the 60th anniversary of Billie Holidays passing, making this project all the more significant and meaningful.  

The MJO will be appearing at the Chicago Jazz Fest in August. Heres a unique opportunity to see this incredible group up close in our intimate venue.

Join us. We'll be recording this performance for Chicago Jazz Live on WDCB, so you'll be part of the studio audience!

Cash bar, light snacks, free parking right outside. Doors open for cocktails at 7:30.
