Corey Wilkes, Yoko Noge, others in busy Chicago jazz week

November 14, 2013

Now that the fall season is in full swing, each week unfolds as a kind of mini-festival of stylistically far-flung attractions.

Consider the highlights of the next seven days:


Yoko Noge: Chicago blues, avant-garde jazz, ancient Japanese folkloric music and contemporary songwriting converge in the work of veteran singer-pianist Noge, who has come up with a polyglot sound and style of her own invention. Better still, Noge has refused to settle into familiar patterns, in recent years composing autobiographical songs of remarkable ferocity and musical idiosyncrasy. 10 p.m. Friday at Katerina's, 1920 W. Irving Park Rd.; $10; 773-348-7592 or katerinas.com
