The Monday Night Concert at the Oak Park Arms features an evening of jazz standards by the Jeremy Kahn Trio at 7 p.m. Monday, January 29, 2018, at the Oak Park Arms, 408 S. Oak Park Avenue.
The trio is comprised of Eric Schneider on sax and clarinet; Larry Kohut on bass and Kahn on piano.
Kahn has been referred to by Chicago Tribune’s Howard Reich as “a rare and gifted pianist,” having 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, the Chicago native now lives in Oak Park.
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. Schneider performed at Ravinia playing clarinet with the Chicago Jazz Orchestra in the Tribute to Benny Goodman.
