GRASS ROOTS. Grass Roots is a new quartet featuring four of New York’s most active and respected composer-improvisers: alto saxophonist Darius Jones, baritone saxophonist Alex Harding, bassist Sean Conly and drummer Chad Taylor. A collective of equals each devoted to creating music that is resoundingly fresh and dripping with soul. As each member composes for the group, each piece (in its multiple layers) is distinct unto itself yet integral to the whole. Orchestral fanfares, monster grooves, longing melodies; glorious free sections, more monster grooves. Mackadocious! Tonight's two sets are the group's Brooklyn debut and they'll be celebrating the release of their brand new album on AUM Fidelity. Two Sets! 7:00pm & 8:30pm $10- per set.

AFRO HORN !!!!! Mexican-American drummer Francisco Mora-Catlett has been gigging around with the third incarnation of the rich Latin-jazz concoction that emerged out of his '70s stint in Sun Ra's Arkestra. Four virtuoso bata drummers sit in tonight for one last jam before returning home to Cuba, so expect final-fling fireworks from a fine band that includes Darius Jones (alto sax), Alex Harding (baritone sax), Anthony Wonsey (piano), and guest trombonist Steve Turre. — By Richard Gehr
