The Heritage Jazz Orchestra was formed in 2016 at Andy’s Jazz Club with the purpose of digging into music from the finest writers from the past half-Century. Featuring many of the city’s most creative and active musicians, the ensemble is led by trombonist and composer Luke Malewicz, and performs throughout Chicago.
