2/16: Alive Jazz

SAME OLD SOUL: The Boston Globe called Roberta Gambarini the "true successor to Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Carmen McRae." The Grammy-nominated dame is what jazz purists have been waiting for, and she'll fit right in at McDavid Studio as part of the UNT Jazz Artist Series. Find $20 tickets ($5 off for faculty, staff and students) here. 7:30PM.

SAME OLD HAUNT: Been to Scat Jazz Lounge in Fort Worth's Sundance Square? Jazz club connoisseur Sarah Crisman has, and though we love us some jazz joints, we weren't, say, at Winter Jazzfest in New York recently like she was. And we haven't been to Scat either (shame); Crisman considers the place "cartoonishly sophisticated." Tonight, then, Ricki Derek and his big band provide a fitting score for Big Band Tuesday with Basie arrangements and originals. 8:30PM.

SAME OLD SETUP: The Rebel Alliance Jazz Ensemble is an all-star one-stop of sorts if you want to see the talent incubating in DFW. The band holds a Tuesday night residency at Pearl at Commerce, where you can have food from nearby restaurants like Deep Sushi delivered right to your table. 7PM.
