Jazz session in Chicago

Marc Pompe and a piano in the dark at Nick's Fish Market. 

I know...it's all about Chicago lately but you have to agree..Chicago is so big... It's impossible to be BASIC when we are talking about this fabulous city. 

Our jazz moment was at Nick's...there was  live music and the soundtrack couldn't be more appropriate for the occasion...jazz...piano, romantic atmosphere...hummmmmm

My party enjoyed the smoky and soothing notes of Marc Pompe playing the piano and singing classic jazz songs.  At some point I requested " Let's get lost " a Chet Baker's  - and he played beautifully.
Towards to the end of the night, when I was getting annoying like all the drunk customers I had to shout out loud " - Now "The girl from Ipanema"... and Mr. Pompe kindly played for us.
I get very emotional when I see talented musicians playing at nightclubs, bars and restaurants because many times they do not get the recognition they deserve.  
Mr. Pompe got a disarming way of singing and playing jazz and his work is very refined.
