Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation presents the Freedom Jazz Series in Freedom Park returning for another summer of music in the park. Jazz music by Marqueal Jordan with special guest John Dillard, local food, craft beers and more.
Marqueal (“Mar-kwell”) Jordan is not your mainstream artist. A Los Angeles native who has made Chicago his home for the past 20 years, Marqueal is a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist. His indelible talent is a virtual emporium of musical genres that encompasses R&B, Soul, Jazz, Hip Hop and Pop. Each magnetic performance embodies the foundation that music is built upon, and also delivers the energy to captivate audiences worldwide. It is rare that you find an artist that can not only cross musical styles, but can do so effectively and convincingly.
