Chris Foreman isn’t slowing down. Even after 40 years of steady performances, he’s an artist as committed to pushing his sound as ever, even if he seems shy about receiving the credit he so richly deserves.
He’s a prophet of a disappearing temple: the Hammond B3 organ, an instrument born in Chicago and intimately linked with the city’s soundtrack. And there’s no better place to hear Foreman do his thing than the legendary Green Mill, a jazz club that’s held down the block in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood for over a century.
I’ve been lucky enough to see Foreman perform for over a decade. Now, I finally get to write about him.
