About CSO: Makaya McCraven "In These Times"
Chicago-based drummer, producer and self-proclaimed “beat scientist” Makaya McCraven “has quietly become one of the best arguments for jazz’s vitality” (The New York Times). In a new work created for the SCP Jazz series and featuring a group of longtime collaborators, McCraven makes his Symphony Center debut with "In These Times," which embraces socio-political themes, accompanied by historical footage and spoken-word passages. Featuring Marquis Hill, Jeff Parker, Junius Paul, Greg Ward & Brandee Younger.
