Makaya McCraven

The powerful, propulsive drummer has made an impression in the few years he has lived here. To date, McCraven has collaborated with such prominent Chicagoans as guitarist Bobby Broom, pianist Robert Irving III, trumpeter Corey Wilkes and saxophonist Ari Brown, among others, and he has led an ambitious, evening-length program at Millennium Park's ¿Made in Chicago: World Class Jazz¿ series. He'll lead the Makaya McCraven Group. 9:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday at Andy's Jazz Club, 11 E. Hubbard St.; $15; 312-642-6805 or andysjazzclub.com
