A Little Day Music

Jazz Times magazine called bassist Ben Allison a "visionary composer," an "adventurous improviser" and "a rising star over the past decade." You can see some of that brilliance during today's A Little Day Music noontime concert. Allison, who appears with jazz violinist Jenny Scheinman, has nine albums of intelligent and accessible jazz music to his credit, including Think Free, released just a few months ago. Noon. Wortham Theater Center, 500 Texas. For information, call 713-524-5050 or visit www.dacamera.com/beyond. Free.
