One of Chicago's most exciting young saxophonists, Kevin Nabors, recently celebrated his 30th birthday in the front room of the new Underground Wonder Bar, in front of a packed house. Backed by guitarist Scott Hesse, bassist Darius Savage and drummer Maxx Popp. Nabors celebrated the beginning of his third decade by performing several of his original compositions, including some from his suite honoring his mentor, the late Fred Anderson. Hesse offered his usual stellar work on the guitar, while Nabors entertained the crowd with his Coltrane-influenced licks. We hope you enjoy these photos from the event.
