The 2012 Chicago Jazz Festival officially gets underway today with a full program of music at the Chicago Cultural Center beginning at noon. The Reader's comprehensive coverage includes reviews of every act on the four-day schedule—with the exception of the high school and university bands that play Saturday and Sunday—but just in case words aren't enough, we've also put together a handy Spotify playlist with tracks from many of this year's performers. Check out part of it after the jump.
