An Evening with Ken Nordine

An Evening with Ken Nordine

100 min min
Chicago Connection

Voice-over and radio legend Ken Nordine has recorded hundreds of radio and TV spots and movie trailers over the past seven decades and has been the voice of our Festival for 46 years. His 1957 album Word Jazz virtually created a new art form that combined the free flow of improvisational jazz with poetry. Ken is currently developing a series of multimedia projects called Image Jazz that will combine words with computer-generated images. This event offers a rare and unique opportunity to hear Ken talk in person about his long and innovative career and to experience some of his best work, followed by a Q&A.
