Smoking Time Jazz Club (The Spotted Cat at 10pm.)

This large local band plays trad jazz from the 20's and 30's. The scene is a mix of old-school jazz fans and hipster swing dancers. The band visits Frenchmen every other Tuesday.

 

Rebirth Brass Band (Maple Leaf, 10p.m.)

Come out to Oak for not one, but two sets from the double Grammy-winning brass band. Led by Derrick Tabb and Tuba Phil, the group has played worldwide, but there is no better place to see them than here, at home.

 

Stanton Moore Trio (Snug Harbor Jazz Trio, 8p.m.)

Tonight, Stanton Moore, the drummer from Galactic and one of the band’s founders, will jam with his side project the Stanton Moore Trio at Snug Harbor. Moore has collaborated with artists including Joss Stone, George Porter Jr., the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Irma Thomas and more. Tonight, he will be joined by David Torkanowsky and James Singleton to play some funk and modern jazz.

 

Albinas Prizgintas (Trinity Episcopal Church, 6p.m.)

This master of the classical organ is one of the best in the world and offers a sound not heard in any club. The local composer and performer has not missed a Tuesday night gig since Hurricane Katrina. Prizgintas once referred to the weekly events as “nights full of mystery” that incorporate visual components into the shows as well.
