Several major attractions have been added to the ninth annual Hyde Park Jazz Festival, running Sept. 26 and 27 in several locations.

Pianist Laurence Hobgood will play a solo set; trumpeter Russ Johnson will lead a new group, convened for the festival; Prashant Bhargava's "Radhe Rahde: Rites of Holi" will be screened in homage to the Chicago born-and-raised filmmaker, who died in May at age 42.
