Houston percussionist and music educator Sam Dinkins III does his bit in sharing the sentiments of the season at today's A Little Day Music: Sam Dinkins Holiday Jazz Concert. Expect swinging versions of Christmas carols and other holiday music. (Can you imagine "Jingle Bells" with a blistering sax solo?) After the new year, Ben Allison and Jose Miguel Yamal perform their own versions of A Little Day Music. See Sam Dinkins and his group today at noon. Wortham Center, 500 Texas.
