Thurs., Feb. 21, Brubeck Institute Jazz Quintet
Crocker Art Museum, 7 p.m., $6-$12
Considering that the Brubeck Institute Jazz Quintet's namesake, the late Dave Brubeck, stood against segregation by leading an integrated band during World War II, it should be no surprise that this group of talented young men will perform in a concert titled Jazz and the Fight Against Segregation. Learn about jazz and its role in integration from first-year BIJQ fellows Thomas Kelley (alto sax), Paul Bloom (piano), Adam Goldman (bass), and second-year fellows Rane Roatta (tenor sax) and Malachi Whitson (drums). This special event is one of several connected with the UC Davis Campus Community Book Project and is presented in part by BIJQ's home, University of the Pacific. 216 O Street, www.crockerartmuseum.org.
