Thurs, July 16, Garrett Perkins Project

Crocker Art Museum, 5:30 p.m., $10

The fire is crackling, the bear-skin rug is in place and two glasses of bubbly have been poured. Now, all you need is Garrett Perkins’ “I Want You” as background tunes to guarantee getting some. The song has a Boyz II Men effect. Think “I’ll Make Love to You”—a song so straightforward it’s almost offensive, but for some reason women just weaken to its seductive command. Saxophonist Perkins amplifies “I’ll Make Love to You” to the sexy power of 10—and he should. At 15 years old, he opened for Mercer Ellington. Get seduced at Crocker’s Third Thursday Jazz Summer Concert Series, but try to remember: You’re in a museum. 216 O Street.
