Jazz tradition returns to St. Paul
ChurchJazz, a Chicago-based jazz ministry, will come to paint the town jazz at St. Paul on Sunday, July 31.
This group of veteran musicians will play the Chicago Jazz Mass at the 9:20 and 11 a.m. services. It is free and open to the public.
For 30 years, the ChurchJazz ensemble has celebrated the gift of God’s music with congregations and audiences in many parts of the United States. The repertoire includes the Jazz Passion, the Chicago Jazz Mass, the Jazz Psalms, jazz hymn festivals, a jazz vespers service, and Bending Towards the Light, a jazz nativity.
