John Young – Serenata
Delmark DD 403 (1992)
After five decades of shaping Chicago jazz as we know it, John is one of the most sought after pianists in the city. He is the consummate performer and teacher. Each night of the week he gigs at a different jazz club. Sometimes with his own trio, other times with vocalists, and for the last year, every Thursday night at Alexanders (3010 East 79th) with the Jazz Masters Quintet. No matter in which combination he plays, musicians and fans alike continue to love him for the musical treasure he is.
