On Thursday May 28th, Great Life Music hosted the first of their now-monthly performance series, CLASSIC ALBUMS, at Reggie's Music Joint on South State Street in Chicago. CLASSIC ALBUMS features two different bands on the last Thursday of every month, preparing some of the greatest albums ever recorded and performing them in their entirety. The series is curated by Colby Beserra, co-founder of Great Life Music, and the musicians are hand-picked from across Chicago's world-class music scene for their musicality and passion.

Local vocalist/sax player Marqueal Jordan, well known across Chicago for his knowledge of all things "soul", led a 7-piece band in covering Stevie Wonder's masterpiece 1973 album INNERVISIONS. Highlights included Marqueal's reworking and reinterpretation of Stevie's harmonica solos on saxophone, the crowd-pleasing classic "Livin' For The City", and the glorious Afro-cuban flavored "Don't You Worry Bout A Thing".
