Most of the songs are by popular artists, but they are the more obscure works. So unless youre a real Maxwell fan or a Van Morrison fan, youre not going to know these songs. While these are covers, they arent straight record lifts. There is a definite Caceres feel to each of them. To try and redo a Stevie Wonder tune is ridiculous, so of course, the format and style of these songs are completely different from the originals. Fans who know Caceres as a serious, edgy jazz musician might be surprised by this album. His excellent jazz saxophone is paired with his soulful singing to create songs that cross over into pop and easy-listening territory. 9 p.m. Stafford Centre, 10505 Cash Road, Stafford. For information, call 281-208-6900 or visit www.staffordcentre.com. $25.
