The 2017 Academy Award nominations give 'Moonlight,' 'La La Land,' and 'Hidden Figures' lots of love

Ira Sullivan

The multi-instrumentalist hasn't lived in Chicago for decades, but his musical identity was forged here and he returns regularly, making him practically a part of the scene, especially as Chicago Jazz Festival week approaches. As always, Sullivan will be in residence at the Jazz Showcase, leading a quartet and collaborating with visiting jazz figures as they arrive in town. This weekend, he'll lead a quartet. 8 and 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday; 4, 8 and 10 p.m. Sunday; at Jazz Showcase, 806 S. Plymouth Court; $20; 312-360-0234 or jazzshowcase.com
