Chicago guitarist and arranger Bob Loewy had three daughters, one of whom grew up to be jazz pianist Judy Roberts. "He'd go to work at night," she recalls. "And all day we'd sit around and make music." Roberts learned more than a thousand songs from her father; she'll perform some of them when she and vocalist Jackie Allen present a free Christmas jazz program at the Union Church of Hinsdale this Sunday. Roberts and Allen will do selections from their CD Santa Baby, and Two for Brazil--guitarist Paulinho Garcia and saxophonist Greg Fishman--will give seasonal standards like "Silver Bells" a Latin spin. It starts at 7 PM, November 26, at the church, at Third and Garfield in Hinsdale. Call 630-323-4303 for more information. Roberts and Allen will repeat the program at 6 PM Sunday, December 10, at Pops Highwood, 214 Green Bay in Highwood. Admission is $10; call 847-266-1313.
