Holiday music with an interesting twist
Listening to Matt Wilson’sChristmas Tree-O is a bit like eating a chocolate-covered habanero: The outside is sweet, but when you bite into the middle . . . yow! They’ll be at the Lily Pad on Friday, December 10, at 7 p.m.
The week between Christmas and the New Year is a little less quiet this year. On Tuesday, December 28, at 8 p.m., saxophonist Jerry Bergonzi and trumpeter Phil Grenadier perform with their group at the Beehive.
Ryles welcomes the Jozef Nadj Fusion System at 9 p.m. on Wednesday, December 29, and, on Thursday, December 30, at 9:30 p.m., the Trio edition of El Eco performs at the Fireplace.
