Alexis Lombre is a young jazz pianist who discovered early that the true essence of music is not just about what you hear but how music makes you feel. Her musical mission is to keep the "soul" in music alive. The recent release of her debut album, Southside Sounds, does just that, as it is a soulful reflection of her upbringing on Chicago’s South Side. This collection of original compositions is an attempt to pay homage to the South Side’s lively artistic, cultural heritage. Since its release, Southside Sounds has been aired on radio stations across the US and is currently charting at #70 on JazzWeek.

The Alexis Lombre Quartet features saxophonist Rajiv Halim, bassist Junius Paul, and drummer Greg Artry.

In case of rain, the event takes place inside the MCA's Kovler Atrium.
