The return of Sketches of Blue!

An exceptional meeting of Kind of Blue and Sketches of Spain, this work is a unique opportunity to hear the music of the world's greatest trumpeter through the sounds and instruments of the Chicago Jazz Philharmonic.


Chicago Jazz Philharmonic

America's definitive 'third stream' orchestra combining jazz and classical music.

Ranging in ensembles from a Double Quartet to a 60-piece orchestra, CJP performs in jazz clubs and orchestra halls. New cross-genre collaborations are continually sought to uphold qualities of innovation and diversity in the repertoire. Learn more about our orchestra.

Third Stream Residencies

CJP tours abroad, primarily in partnership with local resident orchestras, professional or university level. Through these residencies, bridges are drawn between musical genres, cross-cultural musicians, and audiences. Learn more about the (R)evolution of Third Stream.
