Saxophone Sanctuary

Musician Levie Ball played his saxophone at the pedestrian underpass below Lake Shore Drive near Barry Avenue in Lakeview June 2016 in Chicago, a place he’s called his “sanctuary” for over 30 years. Ball said likes to take advantage of being able to play loudly and for long periods of time, something he can’t always do at home. “You might want to play loud, you might want to play soft, you might want to freak out and you can’t do that in an apartment. So I chose to go out and find me a nice little spot where I could play as loud as I want, as long as I want and theoretically get involved into what it will take for me to be a profound horn player,” he said.
