Constellation is a jazz club in Chicago, Illinois, founded in 2013 by Mike Reed, a Chicago-based drummer and composer.[1] Reed was originally Constellation's for-profit (nominally) owner and then, from 2018, its nonprofit organization president.[2][3] Constellation has replaced, and expanded upon, the now-closed Velvet Lounge as a hub of avant garde jazz and improvised music in Chicago. Musicians who have played at Constellation include Fred Hersch, Bobby Broom, Ari Brown, Josh Berman,[4] and many others.
