About the event

Enjoy an hour of live jazz and hoofing with your friends while sipping rosé wine in an intimate setting. Tap dancer and Chicago Human Rhythm Project’s Artistic Director, Jumaane Taylor, and alto saxophonist, Brent Griffin Jr., play improvisational and compositional sets, continuing the progressive exploration of live music with hoofing.

This particular arrangement of musicians have played at the Jazz Showcase, Back Alley Jazz, Stony Island Arts Bank and Museum of Contemporary Art, continuing the progressive exploration of live music with a jazz dance, or hoofing. Hoofing is a style of tap dance established by The Original Hoofers displaying the body moving naturally with their instrument, like playing jazz music.
