TOP-NOTCH JAZZ IN AN UNUSUAL PLACE

Chicago Tribune write Robert Reich recently reviewed one of Benedetto Artist Howard Alden’s performances:

Unforgettable jazz often turns up in unlikely places.

On Monday evening, for instance, listeners flocked to a shopping mall in Evanston, where one of the storefronts belongs to a dance studio — with an impromptu jazz room tucked inside.

So while students at Dance Center Evanston practiced their plies and tap routines in various rooms, a large crowd packed Studio5 to hear master guitarists Howard Alden and Andy Brown leading a quartet. Not a decibel from the dancers in the adjacent studios bled into the listening space, however, the two art forms co-existing quite peaceably.
