The long-running, ebullient Latin jazz band doesn't play Chicago's clubs often enough, mostly because its personnel are in high demand in uncounted ensembles. That makes this appearance by Chevere a signal event for the winter season; the group usually at its best at the Green Mill. As always, Chevere will feature percussionist Alejo Poveda, pianist and harmonica whiz Howard Levy, percussionist Ruben Alvarez, keyboardist Chris ¿Chicago Hambone¿ Cameron, reedist Steve Eisen, guitarist Ernie Denov, trumpeter Mark Ohlsen and congeuro Joe Rendon.
9 p.m. Friday and 8 p.m. Saturday at the Green Mill Jazz Club, 4802 N. Broadway; $15; 773-878-5552 or greenmilljazz.com
