Mike Reed’s People Places & Things

Summer Jazz at the Harris

This performance takes place on the Harris Theater rooftop and is presented in partnership with Chicago Jazz Festival.

Lauded as “nimble, progressive, and hard-swinging” by the Chicago Reader and “unpretentiously joyous” by NPR, Mike Reed’s People Places & Things has been recording, touring internationally, and racking up critical acclaim since 2007. Led by Mike Reed, a drummer and icon in Chicago’s jazz and indie music scenes, People Places & Things doesn’t “simply re-create; they create” (Bill Meyer, Downbeat), exploiting their carefully selected repertoire for dynamic ensemble interplay and virtuosic solo improvisations.
