When Chicago trumpeter Victor Garcia picks up his horn on Friday night, he’ll be making news in at least two ways.
He’ll be leading a new septet, and he’ll be introducing listeners to a potentially major new room: the performance hall at the University of Chicago’s Logan Center for the Arts, which doesn’t have its official launch until next month.
For jazz listeners, that makes Garcia’s appearance at the Hyde Park Jazz Festival Gala a major event. For Garcia, it will be a journey into the unknown.
