The Summer Jazz Festival continues with the Jeremy Kahn Duo at 7 p.m. Monday, August 15 , at the Oak Park Arms, 408 S. Oak Park Ave. Jeremy Kahn, and Eric Schneider will perform a free concert for residents and the public.

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.
