The Arts Section 08/27/17

August 27th, 2017

 

On this edition of The Arts Section, host Gary Zidek talks to drummer/composer Matt Wilson about his HONEY AND SALT project, which was inspired by the words of poet Carl Sandburg. Musician/venue-owner/music programmer extraordinaire, Mike Reed tells us about his thoughts about this year's Chicago Jazz Festival line-up (which he helped program).  The Dueling Critics stop by with a review of a dark production of  the German children's book, SHOCKHEADED PETER. Gary also catches up with the artistic director of a suburban theater company that’s riding high after receiving 19 Jefferson Award nominations this week, the most of any Chicago-area theater.  And Chicago music historian Bill Dahl tells us all about the history of the once proud Wisconsin label, Paramount Records.  All that plus my weekly Arts Section calendar.
