Sheila Jordan: She has to be the hippest octogenarian in jazz. Jordan's annual pilgrimage to the Green Mill always attests to the youthfulness of her manner and the creativity of her delivery, the singer somehow combining jazz sophistication with a childlike sense of wonder. 9 p.m. Friday and 8 p.m. Saturday at the Green Mill Jazz Club, 4802 N. Broadway; $12; 773-878-5552 or greenmilljazz.com
Joan Collaso: The compelling Chicago jazz singer headlines the next installment of the nonprofit Hyde Park Jazz Society's weekly series, which offers about as intimate and friendly a session as any in Chicago. 7:30 to 11:30 p.m. Sunday at Room 43, 1043 E. 43rd St.; $10; valet parking available; hydeparkjazzsociety.com
