Saturday: If I wasn't in Duck I'd go to one of these...
- Vocalist Jennifer Lord & guitarist Rick Keena @ Imbibe 8p.
- Vocalist Amy Hancock joins the Mac McLaughlin Group @ Arcana 8p.
- Do Not Miss Pianist Ernest Turner's tribute to Monk, featuring the simpatico tenor player Stephen Riley @ Sharp Nine 7p.
- Amy Hancock joins pianist Ed Paolantonio @ the Empress Room 7:30p.
- Pianist Stephen Anderson & vocalist Lydia Salett Dudley explore "The Blues" at Chapel Hill's Flyleaf Bookstore 7:30p. Part of a UNC Humanities series.
- Vocalist Frankie Alexander caresses standards in what may be her Sharp Nine debut 8p.
- Christian Tamburr finally gets to play the vibes with an all-star band @ Sharp Nine 8p.
- The extravore Bad Plus trio @ Duke's Baldwin Auditorium 7p. I've not been a Bad Plus fan, but the addition of pianist Orrin Evans--part of Duke's fabulous Monk Fest in 2017--makes the difference.
