[B-lated postin' all systems down] "Great source, no matter" - ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Fri. Sept. 30 -- Justo Almario plays tenor from every direction, the one common factor being deep soulfulness. He's widely loved, so expect a super ensemble. At the World Stage, 4321 Degnan Blvd., Leimert Park 90008; 9pm (two sets); $20; www.theworldstage.org. - Greg Burk, Metal Jazz - Words About Music
