Jazz or country?
If you’re looking to experience the best live jazz you’ve ever heard, on Thursday, November 20, John Tchicai’s Infinitesimal Flash Quartet will play The Palms (at 13 Main Street in Winters), with Francis Wong and former Davis resident Tchicai on saxes and flutes, Adam Lane on bass and Mat Marucci on drums. It starts at 7:30 p.m., and tickets are $15. And if the exploratory edge of jazz isn’t your thing, if you’re a bit more countrified, on Saturday, November 22, the fifth Holler Inside will take place at the 24th Street Theatre at the Sierra 2 Community Center, 2791 24th Street. It commences at 7 p.m. and features host Mike Blanchard with Noah Nelson, Sherman Baker, James Finch Jr., the duo Steve Werner and Furr Dixon, the jug band Ragged But Right, a big Freight Train Riders of America hogjam at the end and even Winko L’Jizz. Admission is $10.
