-9:30pm and 11:30pm- John Wojciechowski
Start Date/Time: Friday, June 21, 2019 9:30 PM
Description:
    Saxophonist John Wojciechowski is an urban musician through and through. He grew up and developed his powerful tenor sound in Detroit—“a really rich community with a lot of great players," he says—and since 2002 has thrived in Chicago, working alongside some of the best players in the city.

Boasting seven strong original compositions, each one reflecting a different aspect of his style and personality, Focus is one of those supremely enjoyable albums that treats the mainstream not as a comfort zone but a central place from which to push stylistic boundaries and assert original ideas. 

Whether leading his own group or furthering his already distinguished career as a sideman, Wojciechowski brings to bear a consummate understanding of where past meets present (the title of one of his previously mentioned songs was inspired by Cohan’s exclamation, “You really summoned the elders!" after one of his performances), where Detroit meets Chicago, and where learning meets teaching and where dedication meets execution.
