Today the Jazz Institute of Chicago, which programs the Chicago Jazz Festival, announced the full schedule for this year’s event. It was already public knowledge that the city had cut down the fest from three days to two due to budget constraints, but thanks to some programming at the Chicago Cultural Center and Millennium Park on Thursday and Friday, September 2 and 3, there are four days of fine music, even though most of the national acts are booked in Grant Park on Saturday and Sunday.
