Start Date/Time: Friday, August 09, 2019 9:30 PM
    For the past twenty years with four albums as a leader, several studio projects as a side man, and countless worldwide performances, saxophonist, vocalist and composer Juli Wood has established herself as a solid, swinging, lyrical and entertaining performer on Chicago’s music scene.  Juli has played many jazz clubs and festivals nationally and internationally; Chicago Jazz Fest, Hyde Park Jazz Fest, Milwaukee’s Summerfest, Chicago’s main jazz clubs – Jazz Showcase, Green Mill, Andy’s and Katerina’s. Skansen Jazz and Blues (Stockholm , Sweden), Pori Jazz Fest (Finland), Bent J’s club (Aarhus, Denmark), Storyville (Helsinki Finland), Arlandia Jazz Fest (Aaland Islands, Finland) and the ” Made in Chicago ” jazz festival in Poznan Poland to name a few.

The new CD from the Juli Wood Quartet, titled "Suomen Salossa", is a follow-up to the highly acclaimed " Synkkä Metsä /Dark Forest " recording from 2015. "The melodies are tender and earthy, and the direct arrangements present the essence of the songs with little fuss. The performances have a classic postbop approach; in fact, if the liner notes didn't explain the provenance of the material, you might not have any idea these are Finnish songs. But sometimes novelty or originality don't matter when the playing is strong and heartfelt. Wood's tenor is marked by a warm, grainy sound smeared by a lovely breathiness ..." - Peter Margasak - Chicago Reader
