Jazz is coming to el, though it won’t be cheap.

Beginning this weekend, the CTA will start running a car featuring live Jazz musicians on a Purple Line train running from downtown to Evanston and back.

“People ride the CTA every day to work, but we thought this would be a good chance to take the train out of that context and put it in a different one,” Daniel Melnick, the program director of the Jazz Institute of Chicago, told the Tribune‘s Howard Reich.

The new car, called the Chi-Jazz El Train by the Mayor’s Office of Special Events and the Jazz Institute of Chicago, leaves on its inaugural two-hour trip from the Library Stop at 1 p.m. Sunday. A CTA historian will point out noteworthy landmarks along the way.
