Our picks for the most noteworthy shows of the week - By Jim Reed
Over the past few years, a handful of fun and mildly adventurous jazz groups have spring up in our region. This spicy, dance-oriented combo, led by veteran percussionist DAVID LUGO, is one of the only acts in the area to specialize in the Latin variant of this improvisational art form, and in a very short time on our local scene, they have found themselves quite in demand. If you normally shy away from seeing live jazz because of the stigma of elitism that unfortunately hangs over many jazz venues, give Latin jazz a try. You may find its funky, danceable rhythms and often festive vibe an easier entry into the overall jazz canon.
