Kurt says what he’s trying for in his music is “Charles Mingus meets The Meters. They go to Duke Ellington’s house to jam, and Cachao and Thelonious Monk sit in.” Greg Sankovich on piano, Lincoln Adler on sax, and David Rokeach on drums. Guest vocalist: Sheilani Alix. Two sets, starting at 5:00 PM. Each will last about one hour, with an intermission of approximately 20 minutes.
