About this event:
Tuesdays on the Terrace is a free live music series hosted by local radio personalities and featuring some of Chicago’s finest jazz musicians.
George grew up in Trinidad around the time that the steelpan (also known as the steeldrums) was first being played. This and a love of jazz led him to become the world’s finest double tenor steelpan jazz performer. His music blends the music of the Caribbean with the great classics of American jazz.
