On Thursday Feb. 10, Houston will get a visit from Chicago jazz outfit, Ethnic Heritage Ensemble. Boasting an impressive repertoire, the band’s members have rubbed shoulders and collaborated with greats like Wynton Marsalis, Dizzy Gillespie, Cannonball Adderly, and Stevie Wonder.

Member Kahil El’Zabar formed Ethnic Heritage Ensemble during the 1970s and the group has remained active ever since with varying lineups. The band’s music is a free-spirited jazz incorporating vocals, different kinds of African percussion, sax, trumpet, and guitar. Thursday’s performance will feature El’Zabar on percussion and vocals, Ernest Khabeer Dawkins on reeds, and Corey Wilkes on trumpet.

The show will start at 8 p.m. in the Historic Eldorado Ballroom (2310 Elgin St). General admission is 15, student admission is 10. Admission is free for attendees under 18.
