Chicago jazz great Makaya McCraven is riding off the release of last year's Deciphering The Message, which found him remixing classics from the Blue Note catalog, and he also more recently contributed to Ropeadope's Chicago Experiment album, and now he's gearing up for a US tour in May.

Things kick off at NJ's Exit Zero Jazz Festival on May 13, and Makaya plays a headlining Brooklyn show on May 19 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets are on sale now. All dates are listed below.
