PipJazz Sundays at the Landmark is a summer concert series hosted by Chicago native and jazz singer Pippi Ardennia, where she performs alongside other notable musicians for a dulcet, finger-snapping experience. Pippi, with a sultry voice that's been compared to Billie Holiday and Dinah Washington, entertains audiences at the F.K. Weyerhaeuser Auditorium, an intimate theatre with a 230-person capacity and padded seats for legs exhausted from constant tapping. Guest artist Patty Peterson, a radio personality and jazz siren, joins up with Pippi for duets on August 14, followed by the gypsy swing and prairie-irrigation advice of jazz violinist Gary Schulte on September 18.
