Lounge Act Wednesday: Kind of Blue


The many shades of jazz will fill the air tonight.---

It’s hard to say that Bruce Hornsby is a jazz musician. The legendary pianist, known for his improvisational live shows, draws on bluegrass, soul and jam on his versatile and well-received catalog of tunes. But those stylings are, to various degrees, rooted in the American musical tradition. And seeing Bruce Hornsby & the Noisemakers at Red Butte Garden tonight will make for either a nice introduction to the form or a treat for the aficionado. The same can be said for the opener, Bela Fleck & The Flecktones, who are mighty fine in their own right. About as experimental as music makers get, the Nashville-based foursome are eclectic enough to see without Hornsby. However, both together will make for an exceptionally awesome evening.

Local jazz scenesters Salt Lake Alternative Jazz Orchestra might be taking notes at Red Butte before they cue up their set at Bar Deluxe tonight. As the Ocean is also on the bill.

And Daniel Day Trio will play jazz renditions of Top 40 hits over at Gracie’s for another after-Hornsby option.
