The Jazz Showcase is the oldest historic jazz club in Chicago, Illinois, founded in 1947 by Joe Segal, now owned and operated by Wayne Segal (Joe Segal’s son). Since 1947, Joe Segal has been the person that you first meet when entering the Jazz Showcase in Chicago. This past April 24th, Segal turned 88, but you wouldn’t know it if you sat with him at the entrance to the Showcase and listened to him talk with the customers for that night’s show. Just as he has done for over 66 years, Segal greets the audience with a thank you, as he takes the cover charge.
