Monstrous young saxophonist in his first Studio5 performance

Rajiv Halim is a saxophonist, composer, and educator from Chicago, IL. He has appeared at venues and festivals in Canada, Poland, Belize, and Taiwan. Here in the States, Rajiv has performed and/or recorded with many great musicians including Jennifer Hudson, Chance The Rapper, Cory Henry, Von Freeman, Mike Stern, Martha Reeves, Bob Mintzer, and The Four Tops. A highlight of Rajiv’s recording career came in 2016 when he contributed saxophone parts to the composition Finish Line by Chance the Rapper for his project Coloring Book, which won the 2017 Grammy Award for “Best Rap Album”. Rajiv’s debut album, Foundation, was released in August 2015 and is available for digital purchase worldwide. Rajiv is an endorsing artist for Jody Jazz Saxophone Mouthpieces and plays them exclusively. We are so excited to welcome this soulful, rising star on the Chicago jazz scene to Studio5.

We'll be recording this performance for Chicago Jazz Live on WDCB, so you'll be part of the studio audience!

Cash bar, light snacks, free parking right outside. Doors open for cocktails at 7:30.
