Besides being one of my music-journalism heroes who schooled me via his perceptive, über-hip criticism in the Village Voice, Greg Tate has led Burnt Sugar Arkestra for 18 years, while spearheading the Black Rock Coalition out of NYC. A big band who merge the sensibilities of Sun Ra and Parliament-Funkadelic, Burnt Sugar Arkestra extrapolate jazz, funk, rock, and the blues into a vibrantly hued, polyglot attack. Their sound is cerebral, extroverted eclecticism to which you can break out in a cold sweat. Tonight watch them tear into Prince's bounteous catalog with freaky gusto and, one would imagine, improvisational zeal. (You can also catch BSA November 3 at Seattle Art Museum, paying tribute to the 1960s “liberation music” of Abbey Lincoln, Max Roach, and Oscar Brown Jr.)

This is part of the Earshot Jazz Festival.
