Summer Jazz Festival: Jeremy Kahn Trio with Erich Hochberg & Eric Schneider

The Monday night Concert Series continues its Summer Jazz Festival with a free performance at the Oak Park Arms retirement community. The Monday Night Concert Series continues with the Jeremy Kahn Trio at 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 30, at the Oak Park Arms, 408 S. Oak Park Ave. Musicians Eric Hochberg and Eric Schneider will be performing as well.

Kahn will perform some of the best songs of the 20th century. Referred to by Chicago Tribune’s Howard Reich as “a rare and gifted pianist,” Kahn has played in jazz venues around the world and in pit orchestras for theatrical events such as “Wicked.” In addition, he has performed with artists such as Dizzy Gillespie, Max Roach, Joni Mitchell, Phil Woods, Alvin and the Chipmunks and Aretha Franklin.

After over a decade living in New York, this Chicago native now lives in Oak Park.

Hockberg is a bassist who has worked on a variety of projects across the realms of jazz, folk, rock and blues for more than 30 years in club and concert venues around the Chicago area. He has performed and recorded with musicians such as Pharoah Sanders, Bobby McFerrin, Pat Metheny, Barbra Streisand, Diane Reeves & Willie Pickens, The Grant Park Symphony, The Joffrey Ballet and Chicago Tap Theater.

In addition, he has played on more than 1,000 jingle, television and movie soundtrack recording sessions and has participated in more than 100 album projects.

Schneider has had an extensive and successful career as a saxophonist and clarinetist participating in concerts, festivals and studio work. After graduation from the University of Illinois, Schneider recorded and toured extensively with Earl Fatha’ Hines for four years and Count Basie and his Orchestra for another two years.

Most recently Schneider performed in the Ravinia 2013 lineup playing clarinet with the Chicago Jazz Orchestra in the Tribute to Benny Goodman, which celebrated the 75th anniversary of Goodman’s Ravinia debut.

Schneider is in high demand by small groups and big bands alike. When not performing, he enjoys golf and skiing.
