September 28.
The Marlene Rosenberg Strings Quartet will be featured at the "JAZZ SHOWCASE.” At their last engagement at the Jazz Showcase, it was a full house, and a packed house when the band played the Cultural Center for the ChicagoJazz Festival.
Be there or....well... you'll miss OUT!

Marlene Rosenberg's Quartet,
featuring:
Marlene Rosenberg - bassist- One of Jazz, Bass, and Music world’s treasures! There is a great bass tone, great swing, and lovely fire in everything that Marlene does.”
— John Clayton, bassist, composer

Paul Wertico-Drums- played with Pat Metheny, Larry Coryell, Jeff Berlin, & many others, He's also a multi-grammy award winning musician.

Mark Feldman-Violin- played with John Abercrombie, John Zorn, Uri Caine, Billy Hart, Dave Douglas, Nashville Symphony and has also spanned the globe touring and recording.

Scott Hesse- guitar -"The Freshest Sound I've heard in yet of all the guitarists of his generation" George Benson. He's an An Origin Records recording artist & Downbeat Magazine says Hesse is terrific: great ears and crazy chops. Comping,he's offering suggestive and unexpected colors, sometimes spidery, fingered chords; when he cuts loose his lines can be thrilling.
