Trumpeter Bobby Lewis, singer Tammy McCann, saxophonist Eric Schneider and guitarist John Moulder will headline the Fourth Annual Chi-Town Jazz Festival, running March 12-22.

As always, the event will support hunger relief in Chicago, with musicians and venues donating their services. The funds will go to those in need via Care for Real, which calls itself Edgewater's Food Pantry, and Catholic Charities. Moulder, a brilliant Chicago guitarist and a Catholic priest, invented the festival and organizes it.
