Thursday Thaw: Mellow Jazz

Bring your boyfriend/girlfriend or your spouse for True Music Productions’ Thursday Thaw, a mellow evening of Latin jazz with Chicago bassist Steve Hashimoto and his Suenos Quintet January 22 at the Ravisloe Country Club in Homewood, and stay at the nearby and affordable Best Western Inn Suites Midway Hotel!

Steve Hashimoto has been a mainstay of the Chicago jazz scene for thirty years. His soulful Latin jazz group, Suenos Quintet, is a Chicagoland favorite! Their album Azul Oscuro features nine original Hashimoto compositions, some traditional jazz classics and a cover of The Beatles’ “Eleanor Rigby.” Call it Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, Flamenco, Fusion and more. Hashimoto’s other group, Mothra plays to sellout audiences. You can read his blog in Chicago Jazz Magazine.

“For a band that’s been around for a few decades, Hashimoto’s “Mothra” sounds remarkably fresh. The luster of the arrangements explains why.” Howard Reich, music critic, The Chicago Tribune.
